Meeting set on Cold Creek Natural Area Site Plan

   Residents interested in helping to shape the future of the Cold Creek Natural Area near Woodinville are invited to an open house to be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, at the Woodinville Library.

   Cold Creek Natural Area is a 150-acre site purchased through the Waterways 2000 program. It links two other King County parks west of Cottage Lake off Woodinville/Duvall Rd.: Daniels Creek Park and Bassett Pond Park. Cold Creek runs through the middle of Cold Creek Natural Area. Potential activities at Cold Creek Natural Area include habitat restoration, interpretive programs, and internal trails.

   Input from citizens at the open house will help King County decide which recommendations to include in a site management plan. The public meeting will consist of an open house during which residents can hear a presentation on use alternatives, view displays, and submit comments. King County staff will be in attendance to answer questions.

   The open house will be held in the multi-purpose room at the Woodinville Library located at 17105 Avondale Rd. NE, east of Woodinville. For more information, call Leslie McLean, project manager, at (206) 296-0968.

   Written comments on site management options for Cold Creek Natural Area will be accepted through Feb. 2 and should be addressed to Leslie McLean at 500 Fourth Ave., Room 320; Seattle, WA 98103.
