Point No Point Lighthouse & Park

Point No Point - Project Update:

We are excited to provide you with an update on the Point No Point Park project, which aims to repair the damages caused during the 2022/2023 Winter season. In our recent public meeting held on June 20, 2023, we presented the project permitting pathway and discussed key highlights. We want to share these updates with you, as they provide valuable information about the project and the steps we are taking to restore the park.

Project Background:

The project focuses on addressing the specific damage that occurred along the north and east beaches at Point No Point Park during the recent Winter season. Our goal is to repair the park and restore it to withstand similar future storm events.

Collaboration with Regulatory Agencies:

We are collaborating closely with regulatory bodies responsible for overseeing work within the shoreline environment in Kitsap County, including the Department of Community Development (DCD), the Corps of Engineers, the Department of Ecology, WDFW, and local tribes. Project design concepts have been reviewed and supported by these agencies.

North Beach - Preferred Alternative:

Our preferred alternative involves replacing the materials lost during the King Tide event in late December 2022. This includes strategically placing fabric within the fill to combat erosion and retain the newly placed beach sand.

Secondary Dune:

To provide additional protection against future events, we plan to construct a secondary dune closest to the intersection of the beach and NE Point No Point Road. This dune will be 2 feet higher than the beach sand placed in item #3.

Native Vegetation and Trail Pathways:

We will actively replant the repaired area with native vegetation and place large woody debris to stabilize the new material and prevent erosion. We will delineate specific trail pathways to guide visitors towards the beach to reduce trampling of vegetation. This will help promote the growth and re-establishment of vegetation along the shoreline.

Rock Revetment Replacement:

We will rebuild the old rock revetment that is currently allowing water to flow through the spaces between the rock onto the light house las. We will use the existing rock but rebuild the revetment to be stronger against future erosion events. We will also tie the end of the revetment into the North and East beaches in a way that will control against erosion.

East Beach - Addressing Low Spots:

We will fill in low spots along the East Beach of the park that were created due to foot traffic. Our modeling and survey work have identified areas that may be susceptible to future overtopping.

All the work outlined above is subject to approval from the regulatory agencies. They have emphasized that no work will exceed what existed at the site prior to the Winter Storm events without a full agency review. Our dedicated staff and design team are working tirelessly to acquire the necessary permits to complete the sand replacement work in September/October of this year. The remaining work will take place during the fish window in the 2024 construction season, pending timely agency approval.

We encourage you to reach out to Kitsap County Parks Staff if you have any questions or would like further information about the project and the ongoing work. We appreciate your interest and support in the restoration of Point No Point Park.
