Governor's Blue Ribbon
Gov. Jay Inslee established the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Parks and Outdoor Recreation through Executive Order 14-01 to develop an action plan and recommendations to manage, transform, better leverage, or develop Washington’s outdoor recreation assets and state programs to increase outdoor recreation activities as well as promote the jobs and business associated with outdoor recreation.
Task Force on Parks and
From April through September 2014, the 29 task force members journeyed around the state, listened to hundreds of people who took time out of their busy lives to show up and speak, and read thousands of comments submitted via e-mail and through an online town hall. The task force submitted their final report to the Governor in September, and the advisory process expired on December 31, 2014. We wish to thank Governor Inslee, task force members, stakeholders, and the public for their time and commitment to this process.
