State Parks to Host Public Planning Meetings for John Wayne Pioneer Trail
February 17, 2016
OLYMPIA – The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invites the public to help plan for the future of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail in eastern Washington through a series of public meetings.
Because the trail spans such a distance, State Parks has scheduled two initial meetings that will cover the same topics. The first meeting is 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 8, at the Cheney City Hall Auditorium, 609 2nd Street, Cheney. (Click here for Directions). The second meeting is 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, in Room 137A of the Student Union and Recreation Center at Central Washington University, 400 E. University Way, Ellensburg.

These are the first of two rounds of public meetings in which State Parks staff will gather information and comments from the public that will help lead to a long-term plan for the John Wayne Pioneer Trail. At these meetings, State Park staff will have a presentation followed by a breakout session to collect comments on a range of trail-related issues, including noxious weed and vegetation management, trailhead and camping opportunities, fencing and trail-use permits.
