The City of Langley may soon acquire four surplus tideland parcels.

The Langley City Council asked Mayor Tim Callison to research funding and the potential purchase of four tideland parcels within the city at its regular monthly meeting on Nov. 20.

Island County previously made the city aware of the parcels; Commissioner Helen Price Johnson asked the city if it was interested in purchasing them and that Conservation Futures grant funding may be available.

The parcels are surplus to the county’s needs.

Callison said at the council’s meeting on Dec. 5 that there’s been confusion regarding the tidelands. He said they are properties that “start at the mean lowtide and go out deeper.”

“So, they’re not something that we can add that would give us walkway or anything like that,” Callison said.

Callison said he is waiting to hear back from the county regarding the status of the tidelands.

“We’re not sure which ones yet are for sale and what price they would sell them,” Callison said.
