Clark County Public Works, Parks and Lands is hosting a public meeting about the budget and plans for parks projects for the 2023 fiscal year. The projects being reviewed are part of the Capital Improvement Plan, which consists of plans for major maintenance projects, preventative maintenance and the creation of new facilities and amenities at county parks, including:
Clark County Public Works Parks and Lands will start another stewardship thinning at Camp Bonneville this summer. Thinning will include a timber sale and hazard tree abatement.
The Clark County Forest Stewardship Plan calls for selective timber thinning and other techniques to create a healthy forest ecosystem. Selective thinning will target removal of approximately 30% of the stand. Modest income generated from these wood products will be used at Camp Bonneville for forest operations, property management and other activities, such as road maintenance.
Klineline Pond at Salmon Creek Regional Park will be closed to the public Wednesday, Aug. 24 for maintenance crews to safely remove a damaged picnic shelter and repair the splash pad water-play feature.
