LBA Woods in the Olympian: Olympia Seeks Public Insight on Parks/Schedule for Public Meetings

This Sunday’s Olympian (November 9, 2014) includes a Andy Hobbs story regarding an upcoming series of 8 neighborhood meetings to gather public input on parks in the Olympia area. A great photo of the ubiquitous “Save LBA Woods” sign figures prominently on the online version, and there is mention of that we have obtained 5200 signatures.    The important analysis by Jim Lazar and Karen Messmar comparing the promise and reality of the 2004 Parks and Sidewalk Ballot measure is also discussed, with a link provided  (see our earlier post).

These neighborhood meetings should be an important opportunity to let the City know how much you love the LBA Woods and to remind them this is Olympia’s last opportunity to create a legacy park for generations to come.

The public is invited to attend any and all meetings. Learn more at The schedule:
