The commission may also tour area sites or parks the day following the regular meeting. No public comment and no formal action are taken at work sessions and tours. The commission chair may call special meetings at any time; all special meetings are announced in advance.

The public is welcome to attend all state park and recreation commission meetings. Meeting sites will be barrier free to the greatest extent feasible. The commission will provide Braille or taped agenda items for the visually impaired and interpreters for those with hearing impairments if a request is received at the appropriate address shown above at least ten working days in advance of the scheduled meeting date.

Agendas are posted on the agency web site http://www.parks.wa.gov/commtg.asp at least one week in advance of meetings, and commission action posted with a week after the meeting.
