State parks unveils Alta Lake, Bridgeport preliminary recommendations

Public meeting to be Jan. 29

PATEROS – Last May 2019 Washington State Parks planners began holding a series of meetings with the public and stakeholders in the Quad City area to formulate long-term recreation and land-use plans for Bridgeport and Alta Lake state parks.
Fast forward five months to October 2019 when parks staff held another meeting to unveil several planning alternatives that had been developed with the help of recommendations from the earlier meetings for public review and feedback.
On Wednesday, Jan. 29, state parks will hold another public meeting to share preliminary recommendations for recreation and land use at Alta Lake and Bridgeport state parks. The meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m. in the Pateros Fire Station at 191 Industrial Way. State parks planners and area field staff will be on hand to discuss the plans and answer questions.
“The Jan. 29 meeting brings the agency closer to developing final recommendations which staff will present at a future meeting of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission,” a parks media release said.
Documents specific to the Jan. 29 meeting, including the draft recommendations, will be posted the week of the meeting online at For additional questions, contact project lead Melinda Posner at 360-902-8671.
