14-044 WA State Parks invites the public to comment on a trail plan proposal for Moran State Park

Public meeting is July 21 in Eastsound

OLYMPIA – July 3, 2014 – The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is holding a public meeting on Orcas Island to discuss a proposal to develop a mountain bike trail in Moran State Park.

The meeting is from 6 to 7 p.m., Monday, July 21 at the Eastsound Fire Hall Meeting Room, 45 Lavender Lane, Eastsound, 98245. The public will have the opportunity to comment during the meeting and by email.

Washington State Parks is looking at long-term management options at Moran State Park as Orcas Power and Light Cooperative (OPALCO) transitions away from the current utility corridor there. Parks has received a proposal from Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for formal development of a trail that will follow the alignment of the power line corridor. The developed trail would use an existing trail and the power line access road.

For more information about the proposal, contact Andrew Fielding, environmental planner, (509) 665-4312. Email comments may be addressed to: andrew.fielding@parks.wa.gov.
