Regional Open Space Strategy Scoping Project Launched

The Bullitt Foundation has provided funding for the GFL and the Northwest Center for Livable Communities (NWCLC), to develop a Regional Open Space Strategy (ROSS) that will identify measures to conserve and enhance open space systems that contribute to the ecological, economic, recreational and aesthetic vitality of our region. As envisioned, the ROSS will include portions of King, Snohomish, Pierce and Kitsap County in the Puget Sound Basin. This summer’s efforts will focus on a portion of the Cedar River watershed as a case study to identify the techniques and procedures for subsequent phases.
