NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETINGS
(Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation)
The IAC meeting will not be in Spokane on September 11 and 12, 2003.
The meeting will be on Thursday, September 11, by telephone conference call. The conference call will be from 9 a.m. to not later than 10:30 a.m.
Because three items require IAC action before October 1, we chose not to cancel the meeting. The IAC board will be asked to review and act on recommendations for the WWRP's 2nd-year list for local parks projects. Likewise, two federal programs - the national recreational trails grants, and the boating infrastructure grants (BIG) need action before the start of the federal fiscal year. If time permits, a few other items such as the regular consent calendar are included.
For public participation, we are setting up a variety of options. There will be a speakerphone in Conference Room 259 of the Natural Resources Building in Olympia, open for all to listen. Staff will be on site, and persons can fill out a regular testimony card so we can let the chair know if someone wants to testify from this location. In addition, there will be opportunities for several other listen-in points of access around the state. And, if desired, people can let us know if they want to testify from another phone location, and we can make the arrangements. All the meeting materials and call instructions are being posted on the agency website at http://www.iac.wa.gov/iac/board/agendas.html.
IAC public meetings are held in locations accessible to people with disabilities. Arrangements for individuals with hearing or visual impairments can be provided by contacting IAC by September 2, 2003, at (360) 902-2637 or TDD (360) 902-1996.
