STATE PARKS -- Should the State Parks system operate more like an enterprise-based hospitality industry, a public conservation asset based mostly on grant and tax funding – or perhaps a system of parks freely standing as community non-profit entities? What do people love about their park system, and what improvements need to be made?
Parks officials asked those questions at public meetings in Spokane last month as they gather info for big decisions to be made later. The statewide meetings are continuing this week in Western Washington.
People who love state parks should get involved now. Comments are being accepted online.
