Planning for Sacajawea State Park continues

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The planning for a park with a history dating back to the Lewis and Clark Expedition continues after a winter long break. The planning process for Sacajawea State Park began in 2008 and now the planning team is one step closer to proposing their final recommendations. 

The planning team met with the public to discuss the preliminary goals to help maintain the state park. The goal is to create a land use plan that will guide the way the park is developed and used in the future. Some of the issues include expanding the picnic shelter, maintaining natural areas, and protecting cultural, archaeological and historic properties.

After hearing from the public, the planning team will make its final recommendations and propose it to the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. The meeting is open to the public and be in Walla Walla on June 24, 2010.
