State reschedules open house for natural resources
January 24, 2012
The state Department of Natural Resources has rescheduled a planned meeting regarding recreation in the Snoqualmie Corridor, a network of natural areas stretching from Tiger Mountain to Mount Si.
The meeting is from 7-9 p.m. Feb. 1 in the Commons Room, Snoqualmie Middle School, 9200 Railroad Ave. S.E., Snoqualmie.
Snow prompted officials to cancel the meeting planned for Jan. 18.
The state agency is readying for future recreation opportunities on 53,000 acres in natural areas along the so-called Snoqualmie Corridor in East King County. The open house is meant to continue the public planning process.
The corridor — a quick jaunt from Seattle and fast-growing Eastside cities — is a popular destination for hikers, mountain bikers and more. Combined, the lands in the corridor form the largest network of natural areas in Washington.
In recent months, Department of Natural Resources officials started gathering input about recreation in the Snoqualmie Corridor. The open house is the latest step in the planning process.
Officials plan for the meeting to include a brief presentation from agency staffers and then opportunities for participants to share ideas.
