King County sets 2nd meeting on Danville-Georgetown, Henry’s Ridge trail plans

King County is providing a second opportunity for residents to share their views on a draft trail stewardship proposal for 600 acres of public forestland east of Maple Valley.

A public meeting has been set for Tuesday, July 23 at Lake Wilderness Lodge in Maple Valley, where County staff will discuss how the trail proposal will be included in the recently completed Danville-Georgetown Open Space Forest Stewardship Plan.  The County also met with the community on the proposal on April 24.

The July 23 meeting is set for 7-8:30 p.m. at Lake Wilderness Lodge, located at 22500 SE 248th St.

King County staff will review and discuss proposals on long-term trail improvements and usage by hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers at Danville-Georgetown Open Space, and at the nearby Henry’s Ridge Open Space.

The meeting will include a short presentation along with an opportunity for public input.  Written comments will be accepted until August 2, 2013.

The Danville – Georgetown Forest Stewardship Plan is available for review at http://www.kingcounty.gov/recreation/parks/naturalresources/foreststewardship.aspx; the Henry’s Ridge Forest Stewardship Plan will be completed in 2014. Final trail recommendations will be incorporated into forest stewardship plans for both sites.
