Input wanted for Larrabee State Park planning

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDApril 14, 2014 

BELLINGHAM - The public can help develop a management plan for Larrabee State Park during a meeting Tuesday, April 15, in the Fairhaven Library at 1117 12th St.

The meeting is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. It is part of the second phase of a land-use planning project for the 2,683-acre park spread between Whatcom and Skagit counties.

Land classifications within the park will be discussed during the meeting. Like zoning rules, such classifications determine park use ranging from areas that allow recreation to those that focus on protection.

Information about the project is online at parks.wa.gov/864/Larrabee-State-Park-Planning.

People can comment at the meeting, by emailing Larrabee.Planning@parks.wa.gov or calling Park Planner Randy Kline at 360-902-8632.

The public planning process looks at overall visitor experiences, natural resources, use of park buildings, recreation areas and trails and other topics of interest to the community.
