Newberry Hill Heritage Park, Last Meeting

This is a quickie, but wanted to make sure people knew the planning for a 1,000-plus acre heritage park in Central Kitsap is coming to a close. Here’s an email Martha Droge, park projects coordinator for the county sent out to interested parties:

“This is a reminder that the next public meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday April 13 from 6 – 8 pm at Klahowya Secondary School. Unfortunately we will not have a presentation by DNR staff on the land reconveyance process (postponed due to limited DNR budget/staff).  We’ll have that presentation later in 2010 — standby for an email on the date.  We will have updates on the trail management plan, the April 21, 2010 Parks & Advisory Board review of the plan, and of course public comment and the master plan.

PLEASE NOTE: The Parks Department website has been re-done.  All of the Master Plan’s presentations and all public comment received can now be found at: and click on “Planning/Capital Projects” from either the button at the bottom or under “Parks” on the upper left hand menu.  We hope that you find the website more interactive and user-friendly (there’s even a quiz with prizes!).

Throughout the process, we are pleased to receive public comment via email to or by US mail using the comment cards available at the public meetings.

Please share this information with others who may be interested in the master planning process.  Thank you for your interest in Newberry Hill Heritage Park.


As you’ll see, the plan is scheduled to come before the park advisory board on April 21 – which is next week. My how time flies when you’re planning for parks.
