Anyone with ideas about Thrashers Corner Park should call city
On Jan. 8 I attended the first of three meetings in which Bothell invited input for the master plan on Thrashers Corner Regional Park. I thought the public could attend any one of the three for brainstorming and putting out ideas, hopes and dreams for the park.
I found they are progressive meetings. The first was for brainstorming; the second on Jan. 29 will be to look at what is done with these ideas in a rough form of the master plan. The last meeting in February will be a finalization of what will be offered to Bothell City Council in May. I don't know when the cutoff date for ideas is, but at the Jan. 8 meeting, they said ideas could be submitted by e-mail or phone.
So if anyone out there has any ideas for Thrashers Corner Regional Park ‹ saving the wetlands, preserving bird habitat, protecting the salmon of North Creek, trails, educational or interpretive center, preserving the integrity of Filbert Creek, whatever ‹ please call Pat Parkhurst of Bothell Parks (425) 486-7430 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
