NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETINGS
PARKS AND RECREATION
[Filed March 9, 2020, 11:29 a.m.]
As required by RCW 42.30.075
, Open Public Meetings Act, the following change to the regular meeting schedule of the Washington state parks and recreation commission is submitted for publishing in the Washington State Register.
With an increase in COVID-19 cases in Washington state and considering state guidance, parks decided to cancel the March two-day meeting. The commission has not decided whether to select an auxiliary date yet.
The next scheduled regular public meeting will be held on May 6-7, in Port Townsend at Fort Worden State Park, 200 Battery Way, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
The commission meets in a work session from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. the day prior to the regular meeting in the same location or at a location near the regular meeting location. Work sessions are educational sessions on park operations and issues that eventually may go before the commission.
The commission may also tour area sites or parks the day before or following the regular meeting. No public comment and/or formal action are taken at work sessions and tours.
The public is welcome to attend all state park[s] 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 website, http://parks.state.wa.us, at least one week in advance of meetings, and commission action posted.
