Windjammer Park Integration Plan

About the Windjammer Park Integration Plan (WPIP)

Siting the Clean Water Facility in Windjammer Park presents a unique opportunity to develop a long-term plan for the park, integrating existing and new elements in this special community space. The Windjammer Park Integration Plan (WPIP) will help guide the future programming of Windjammer Park.

City Council approved the Windjammer Park Integration Plan on June 7, 2016. The plan is based on feedback from the community, including the Community Advisory Group and two public open houses. You can view the full preferred concept here and the document appendices here.

Community Advisory Group Process

The City of Oak Harbor is committed to involving the public in the Windjammer Park Integration Plan process, and in 2015 chartered a community advisory group. The community advisory group provided advice regarding proposed layout options, including definitions and locations of programmatic elements. The group was a sounding board for the project design team and serve as a liaison to the public. The group:

  • Reviewed information to understand elements that have been included in previous park plans
  • Provided input on the elements included and layout of the future park
  • Advised the City on interests of the community for the future park

Preferred Concept

The project team presented the preferred concept to City Council at the June 7 City Council meeting. Council approved the concept, which is based on feedback from the community, including the Community Advisory Group and two public open houses. You can view the preferred concept here and the document appendices here.
