Sequim’s Centennial Place design options up for perusal

SEQUIM — Three design concepts for the downtown Centennial Place intersection will be up for review through an open house today and online survey.

City of Sequim staffers host the open house from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today in the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St. The online survey is available throughout January at

The three concepts — “Farm Yard,” “Flow” and “Woven” — were designed by JETT Landscape Architecture and Design with input taken from a 2021 survey, and recent interviews and meetings with various city boards.

In October, the Sequim City Council unanimously directed staff to survey the public to help create a final option for approval by council members later.

• “Farm Yard” offers a porch scene along Washington Street with a “Welcome to Sequim” sign above swing seats, a lawn area, stage and water feature.

• “Flow” proposes a large sundial that could double as a spot for the city’s Christmas tree, a “Sequim” sign, a pavilion/stage, a promenade and lawn through the site, seat walls and a lavender garden.

• “Woven” shows a stage area surrounded by large sculptures — that consultants said could be seen as fungi or waves — alongside a sunken lawn area.

All three designs offer space for a Christmas tree.

Jett staff estimate the three options could cost about $2 million minus amenities, and about $2.8 million with amenities in “Farm Yard” and “Flow,” and about $4 million for “Woven.”

City staff budgeted $50,000 for creation of the designs, and the city’s 2024-2029 Capital Improvement Program has $100,000 scheduled for continuing progress.

Once a design is picked, they’ll seek funding, staff indicated to council.

Centennial Place, formerly known as the Gull lot, was purchased by the City of Sequim in 2013 and named after the city’s centennial year.
