(SNOHOMISH, WA.) -- As they say in the movie business, it's a wrap.

The city's new boat launch at 20 Lincoln Avenue in Snohomish has been completed by the Washington State Fish and Wildlife agency and is fully oerational and open for the public's use.

See map at right for location of facility.

There's a formal dedication ceremony set for Friday, July 22nd at 2 pm at the new facility. Everyoe is invited to join the mayor Karen Guzak, city staffers, Washington State Fish and Wildlife, Puget Soundkeepers, Sportsmen’s Club and local stakeholders in celebrating the completion of the Boat Launch that day.

The money drop
 
With the support of former 44th District House Rep. Hans Dunshee, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) was awarded $500,000 from the Jobs Now program for the design, permitting and construction of the new boat launch. 
 
“We’re very grateful for the involvement of the state legislature and Snohomish County that made this project possible,” said Snohomish Mayor Karen Guzak. “This is a gift to our community that will be enjoyed by recreational boaters for many years.  We encourage everyone in Snohomish to come and enjoy this beautiful new park property.”
 
The new launch is located at a 20-acre property at 20 Lincoln Avenue along the Snohomish River that was bought by the City with a $500,000 grant from the Snohomish County Conservation Futures program.  

Construction began in early September 2015 and was accepted by the City on July 6th. So the launch is now a City-owned and maintained recreation facility surrounded by future parkland (currently unimproved land).
 
The facility’s parking lot will include eight trailer spaces, two ADA-accessible spaces and 11 standard spaces as well as overflow parking with 25 spaces. Parking is free for the time being. 

The City Council has not reviewed estimated maintenance costs or determined if a parking fee will be imposed.
 
The boat launch was built in response to requests to replace the outdated and undersized parking lot of the City’s damaged Cady Park Boat Launch, according to a city statement.

Since the 1960’s the City has maintained a boat ramp at nearby Cady Park with free parking for all vehicles. But that ramp has deteriorated over time and was damaged many years ago by an amphibious military vehicle.

It will now be decommissioned from use for vehicle-launched boats upon completion of the new boat launch.  The ramp will be retained for hand launched, non-motorized boats.
