Long-term Planning begins for Wallace Falls State Park
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is beginning a public process that will lead to a long-term plan for Wallace Falls State Park near Gold Bar.
The planning process, also known as Classification and Management Planning (CAMP) includes four stages:
- Identify issues and concerns of park stakeholders
- Explore alternative approaches to address identified issues
- Prepare preliminary recommendations to address issues or suggest a realistic compromise.
- Propose final recommendations for formal agency and Commission adoption.
Washington State Parks has completed more than 100 land-use plans for parks around the state, through its Classification and Management Plan (CAMP) process. The CAMP process will address parking, day-use and camping opportunities, overall visitor experiences, natural resources, recreation areas and trails and other topics of interest to the community. A copy of the official press release for this project can be found at http://parks.state.wa.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=346 .
The public is invited to participate in the process from the beginning by attending the first planning meeting, scheduled for:
November 15th from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Sultan City Hall Community Room located at 319 Main Street in Sultan.
Opportunities for public comment will be available at the meeting, and public comment also may be provided by contacting Randy Kline, Parks Planner, at (360)902-8632 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
