Public workshop Oct. 27-28 for the Sitka Sustainable Outdoor Recreation Action Plan

The Sitka Outdoor Recreation Coalition will join other community groups Oct. 27-28 at a U.S. Forest Service-hosted meeting to create a Sitka Sustainable Outdoor Recreation Action Plan.

The public workshop for this plan takes place from 6-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 27, and Thursday, Oct. 28, at the Harrigan Centennial Hall Maksoutoff Room. Members of the Sitka Outdoor Recreation Coalition plans to attend both workshops to get a feel for the plan and where it’s going, then the Sitka Outdoor Recreation Coalition will hold its initial meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18, at Harrigan Centennial Hall to kick off our own project (note, this is a change of time from what was announced at the Sitka Health Summit).

The Sitka Sustainable Outdoor Recreation Action Plan will help build a framework to integrate recreation options in Sitka. The plan will guide and coordinate Sitka’s many recreation options, so people know what facilities, programs and informational services are available.

Right now there are many recreation offerings provided by a wide variety of groups, but there’s not that one place where people can go to get information. This plan will help us know exactly what is being offered in Sitka, and what our needs are for the future.

For more information about the meetings, contact Carol Goularte, the District Ranger for the Sitka Ranger Station of the Tongass National Forest, at 747-4218 or by e-mail at cgoularte@fs.fed.us. For more information about the plan, go to http://www.outdoorsitka.com/.
