Potlatch State Park

OLYMPIA – Aug. 14, 2019 – The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is beginning the process to develop the agency’s 2021-31 strategic plan and would like the public’s input.

State Parks is hosting three public meetings to hear from stakeholders about the draft strategic planning framework the Commission developed for 2021-31 and to discuss if the draft reflects the needs of park users across the state. Topics to be discussed include the current state of the park system and goals and strategies for achieving a healthy, sustainable park system.

The Commission values the public’s comments and encourages the public to help develop direction for the next 10 years. Information and feedback gathered will be used to finalize the strategic plan over the next several months. Stakeholders may provide feedback at the public meetings or online.
