DNR Meeting Notes

There was a great showing at the DNR meeting tonight and an even representation of both motorized and non-motorized user groups.   The meeting started with a brief introduction explaining the purpose of DNR, the development of the trail policy, and the estimated timeline for the regional planning in Whatcom County.  Following the intro was a long open session where people were encouraged to walk from station to station and answer a few questions to help with the planning process for Whatcom County.  If you didn’t make it to the meeting, here are a few questions asked at each station that may help you write your email to the DNR.   They’re also hoping establish a diverse trail planning committee so send them your resume and explanation as to why you’d be a good candidate if you’re interested.

Please e-mail  BakertoBellingham@dnr.wa.gov  if you have further questions regarding the planning committee or want to submit your thoughts and opinions regarding how you’d like to see official recreation established on our local DNR land.  There will be more meetings in the future so stay tuned!  http://www.dnr.wa.gov/BakertoBellingham
