Long-range plans for state park land on South Whidbey, including a permanent ban overnight on parking at South Whidbey State Park, will likely become official this month.

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 18 at the Leavenworth City Hall Council Chambers, 700 US Highway 2, Leavenworth, to vote on plans proposed for three properties: South Whidbey State Park, Possession Point State Park and tidelands in Useless Bay.

The plans propose new land classifications and long-term boundaries for the properties. The meeting is open and includes a public comment period. Comments can also be submitted by email to Randy Kline at randy.kline@parks.wa.gov. The deadline is 5 p.m. May 12.
