Buckley looking for citizen ideas
A public hearing to exchange ideas regarding proposed updates of the parks, trails and recreation plan has been announced by the city of Buckley.
The open house is planned for 6:15 p.m. Jan. 28 in the Multi Purpose Center, 811 Main St.
Specifically, public input is needed on three aspects of the Buckley Parks and Recreation plan – safe routes, active living and recreation and tourism. The meeting will review issues like:
• what kind of infrastucture should the city develop to ensure safe walking routes, especially for children and seniors?
• with the White River bordering the city limits and Mount Rainier in the background giving the Buckley a solid foundation for a recreation-based economy, what should the city invest in to create a framework that fosters economic growth?
