How is the County involved in this project?

The County is responsible for providing the property, which will be acquired through the reconveyance process from the DNR per RCW 79.22.300, RCW 79.22.040, and RCW 42.30.060.

  1. Preparation of reports
  2. Review EIS and SEPA of similar projects
  3. Provide draft EA and EIS
  4. Assist with correspondence between DNR and other agencies
  5. Review design components and make recommendations
