The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks will hold a public hearing to discuss Green River land exchanges.

The meeting is scheduled for May 27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Flaming Geyser State Park Lodge near Auburn.

Officials will discuss proposed land transfers between the agencies and changes to long-term boundaries for Green River area parks.

Several King County properties in and around the Green River Gorge Conservation Area are proposed to be transferred to Washington State Parks, while several state parks properties in Auburn along the Green River are proposed to be transferred to the county.

“We see this proposal as leading to more efficient management of these important public lands for conservation, parks and recreation purposes,” said Nikki Fields, state parks planner.

For a copy of the preliminary proposal or to request special accommodations in order to attend the workshop, please call 253-288-3000 or Washington Telecommunications Relay Service 800-833-6388 or e-mail nikki.fields@parks.wa.gov.

Flaming Geyser State Park, 23700 SE Flaming Geyser Road, and the Green River Gorge Recreation Area are a conservation spot located in King County, 2.5 miles south of Black Diamond and eight miles north of Enumclaw off State Highway 169.
