Whidbey Island Conser-vation District is now accepting comments on its draft Long Range Plan.

In November 2016, the Conservation District began its long range planning process.

As one of 45 Washington state conservation districts, the purpose of a long range plan is to help conservation districts identify broad goals and outcomes and focus on a vision for future work.

An important part of this process involved feedback from the public and partners at three community meetings held in November that helped the district identify what the public felt were the natural resource conservation needs, priorities and opportunities that the district’s work should focus on in the next five years.

To view the draft Long Range Plan, visit www.whidbeycd.org. Comments can be submitted electronically to wicd@whidbeycd.org or by submitting via the comment form at www.whidbeycd.org

You are also welcome to share your comments by calling the Conservation District Office at 360-678-4708 or 888-678-4922, or by dropping them off at the office.

All comments should be submitted no later than end of day, Friday, May 19.

The draft will be approved by the board during the May 24 board of supervisors meeting, held 9-11:30 a.m. at the district conference room, 1 NE 4th St. Coupeville, WA 98239.

The meeting is open to the public.
