State Parks to discuss Navy decision

OLYMPIA – The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will conduct a virtual special meeting at 10 a.m. Thursday to discuss possible clarifying language concerning the Navy Special Operations Training on state park beaches.

The commission will decide whether clarifying language should be adopted in regard to the amendment approved Jan. 28.

To join, go to stateparks feb11. The password is [email protected] To call in, dial 415-655-0001 or 206- 207-1700. The access code is 177 847 2245. The commission will not take public comment at the meeting.

State Parks staff identified a potential disparity between the intent expressed by the commission at the meeting and the wording of the approved amendment.

The Navy received permission to conduct SEALs training on state parks beaches. The original request of 28 parks was cut to perhaps as few as 16, depending upon permitting for each individual park.
