At its first meeting of 2018, Wednesday Jan. 3, the Si View Metro Parks Board of Commissioners officially welcomed Amy McGhee to a new term as the elected commissioner at the governing board.

This is Commissioner McGhee’s second term representing the Si View Metropolitan Park District residents. She is dedicated to supporting recreation opportunities and has led outdoor adventures for Perkins School for the Blind, instructed courses for the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Youth Opportunities Program, hiked third of the Appalachian Trail, and volunteered for Seattle’s Inner City Outings.

Also on Jan. 3, the board held its annual election of officers. Commissioner Susan Kelly moved up from clerk to president. Commissioner McGhee replaces Kelly as clerk. The other members are Commissioners Linda Grez, Mark Joselyn and Bud Raisio.

The Commission sets policy for Si View Metro Parks, which operates an extensive array of recreation programs and actively manages nearly 900 acres of parkland in the upper Snoqualmie Valley. In all, this system of parks, programs and trails supports a range of active and passive recreation experiences. Commissioners serve staggered six-year terms and are elected by voters residing within the boundaries of the Si View Metropolitan Park District, which includes the City of North Bend and surrounding unincorporated areas.

Si View Park Commission meets every first and third Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the North Annex office of Si View Community Center, 400 SE Orchard Drive. The public is welcome to attend meetings.
