A message from the State Office of Financial Management regarding historic McNeil Island

The Washington State Legislature has directed the Washington State Office of Financial Management (OFM) to prepare a REPORT to use to initiate a comprehensive, long-range planning process for the future of McNeil Island during the 2013-15 Biennium. The report is due to the Governor and Legislature by October 1, 2012.

One of the report components is a summary of consultation with interested parties. OFM and its consultant team, BERK, are hosting two open houses in late August that are open to all.
