Should Mount Si Conservation Area be expanded? Hearing is tomorrow
The state’s Department of Natural Resources holds a public hearing on a proposed boundary expansion of Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at the Snoqualmie Ranger Station Conference Room, 902 S.E. North Bend Way, North Bend.
Members of the public who attend will learn about the process and have an opportunity to submit public comments about the proposed boundary expansion. You can view a map of proposed expansion area at http://1.usa.gov/1cIsGSD.
The proposed boundary expansion will include 161 acres of state trust lands manage by DNR to create a contiguous block of protected land benefitting wildlife and the public. No privately owned lands are included within this proposed boundary expansion.
DNR would later transfer the trust lands within this expanded boundary to conservation status and purchase other revenue-producing lands for the Common School Trust, which funds public school construction statewide.
Written comments may be submitted through December 20 to DNR South Puget Sound Region, Natural Areas Program at 950 Farman Avenue N., Enumclaw, WA 98022, or emailed with the subject line “Mount Si NRCA Boundary Hearing” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
