Attend any of three upcoming public meetings to learn more about potential strategies for protecting high conservation value open space in King County.
King County and local cities are contemplating a future open space acquisition effort to “finish the job” of land conservation in the county within the next generation.
Join County employees at any of three upcoming meetings to learn more about potential future open space conservation work:
• Tuesday, Nov. 29 at Carnation Library, 4804 Tolt Ave., Carnation;
• Wednesday, Dec. 7, Douglass-Truth Library, 2300 E. Yesler Way, Seattle; and
• Monday, Dec. 12, Fairwood Library, 17009 – 140th Ave. SE, Renton.
All meetings run from 6-7:15 p.m., and will include a presentation about open space conservation, followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion about potential strategies for protecting lands with high conservation value.
King County Executive Dow Constantine transmitted a land conservation and preservation work plan to the King County Council in March 2016 that included proposals for how the County could help preserve natural lands, farms, forests, river corridors and regional trails corridors.
In September 2016, Executive Constantine assembled an advisory group to help him develop a long-term strategy for conserving green spaces, working resource lands and other unprotected lands of high conservation value.
