The SEPA for Woodland Skatepark was contested and the project
was delayed. The Hearing Examiner issued her decision on Nov.
16, 2006. She affirmed Parks' Determination of Non-Significance
and did not find any errors. This decision was appealed a second
time and another hearing was scheduled for May 21, 2007. Parks'
Determination of Non-Significance was upheld once again.
Notice to Proceed was issued for Sept. 20. The project will progress
until complete in early 2008.
