Meeting date changed to June 13 for Advisory Committee to discuss Title II project proposal

WENATCHEE  -The Resource Advisory Committee for the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest will meet on June 13 to discuss potential funding for projects that benefit watersheds and forest-related resources on national forest lands in Okanogan and Chelan counties. Twenty-three projects will be reviewed by the committee.

“We had planned to meet on May 30 but found out we will not have a required quorum of committee members available to meet on that date--a minimum of nine advisory committee members must be in attendance for a meeting to occur. Instead, the meeting set for May 30 has been cancelled and rescheduled to occur on June 13,” said Deputy Forest Supervisor Erick Walker.

The rescheduled meeting will start at 9 a.m. and end around 3:30 p.m. and will be held at the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest headquarters office downstairs meeting room at 215 Melody Lane in Wenatchee.

“Nine projects have been submitted for consideration for Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act Title II funding in Chelan County and 14 projects for Okanogan County,” Walker said. “Just over $223,000 in funding is available for Chelan County and $371,000 for Okanogan County.”

Advisory committee members represent a wide variety of citizen interests and are residents of each of the four counties within the two national forests. The committee’s funding recommendations will be forwarded to the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest Supervisor for final approval.  

All committee meetings are open to the public.
