Statewide Inholdings and Adjacent Lands 2008
- Funded in 2009
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will use this grant to buy 120 acres of inholdings. From time-to-time during the biennium, State Parks learns of desirable properties adjacent to or within the boundaries of a park. Some of these properties are small and consequently may not compete well for grants. Others require immediate action to buy the property. In the past, funds from Inholding grants have been used to purchase property to remove undesirable neighbors (tavern) from a park, to obtain legal access to a park, to acquire desirable property listed with a real estate agent, and to buy sites with high natural resources value.
