The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is to consider a proposed plan for Pasco's Sacajawea State Park on Thursday.
The commission is to vote on long-term boundary and land designations for the park during its meeting, which starts as 9 a.m. at Walla Walla Community College's Water Environment Center, 500 Tausick Way.
The proposals are part of long-term planning that addresses issues relating to culture and history, natural resources, recreation and facilities.
The proposed land designations include classifying the southern tip of the park as heritage, while north of the tip, including the boat launch and Wanapum Village area, would be recreational use.

Most of the rest of the park would be resource recreation, which means it can be used for activities such as hiking and biking, but the focus will be environmental preservation.
The riparian area along the Columbia River and the sand dunes in the middle of the park have been classified as natural to give them a higher level of protection.
The plan does not recommend a boundary change.
