Lake Sylvia and Schafer State Parks to be Discussed Tonight

MONTESANO, Wash. – With the financial future of nearly 40 Washington State parks now tucked under a new 5$ op-out licensing fee, State Parks Planner Brian Hovis is asking the public for their ideas on Lake Sylvia and Schafer State Parks. A Workshop will be held Monday evening from 7 until 9pm at the Montesano (Mont-ee-say-no) city hall to discuss the land use planning project for both parks, as well as to establish a land classification system. The planning process, also known as Classification and Management Planning, or CAMP, includes four planning stages expected to span over 9 months of public meetings to address development and management of the park’s programs and facilities, as well as the protection of natural and cultural resources.
