Sitka National Historical Park will host two meetings for public participation regarding the completion of the first phase of the Sitka Sea Walk, the end where the pathway enters the national park.
The first phase of the Sitka Sea Walk, which opened in October 2013, extends from the Crescent Harbor parking lot to Sitka National Historical Park, running above the harbor parallel to Lincoln Street. The unfinished portion, from near Merrill Rock on Lincoln Street to the Sitka National Historical Park Visitor Center, has three possible options for completion. The public meetings will present the options, answer questions, and gather public opinion.
The first meeting will be held as an open house, from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at the Sitka National Historical Park Visitor Center. The second meeting will be a presentation by the Chief of Resources, Brinnen Carter, and will begin at 5:30 pm, on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at the Sitka National Historical Park Visitor Center.
