State parks commission to meet at CBC on Thursday

May 12, 2013 

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will consider revisions for requests for easements on state park lands at a meeting Thursday at Columbia Basin College in Pasco.

The commission is hoping to better manage its easement program by addressing new and existing easements for utility placements in “rail-trails” and traditional park properties.

The most easement requests are for public utility placements, such as water, power and sewer lines going through parklands.

The commission also will consider a master agreement for public utility easements and fee schedules for placements by public and for-profit utility, petroleum products, natural gas and fiber optic transmission lines.

The meeting is at 9 a.m. at the Student Services Building at 2600 N. 20th Ave.
