Representative Lynn Kesler is inviting Grays Harbor residents to a Community Meeting to discuss "What's next for Lake Sylvia State Park? Your turn." Wednesday evening at the Montesano City Hall, from 6 pm until 7:30 residents will be able to offer their ideas and opinions on the state park recently saved by the 5$ opt-out car licensing fee, along with nearly 40 others that were on a state chopping block this budget cycle.
The WeLuvLakeSilvia group reports:
Remember when Lake Sylvia State Park was going to be closed? Remember when we wrote to Rep. Lynn Kessler and promised we'd "do anything" to keep it open? Now is our chance to show Rep. Kessler just how serious we are about our Park! She will be directing the meeting, will answer our questions and will expect us to offer our time to help.
Rep. Kessler was key to getting the new vehicle tab $5 donation program through the legislature to save all the parks in our state. She has worked hard to keep our parks and wants to have an open discussion to find ways the public can help.
Also present will be Rex Derr, the Director of State Parks. He, too, was impressed with our desire to keep Lake Sylvia & Schafer open and should be able to help us with ways we can support our Parks.
Please mark 07-08-09 on your calendar and join us at 6 PM at City Hall.
