Amon Basin items of interest

Here are a few things Karen Sowers mentioned last night at the annual meeting that may be of interest to Willowbrook residents:

1. The Fast Focus (hot topic) question for this Sunday's Tri-City Herald is:
Should Richland do more to protect Amon Creek Natural Preserve?
Please take this opportunity to show your support for the Amon Creek Natural Preserve by responding to the Fast Focus question - it's in our backyard!

2. There will be a City of Richland Parks and Rec meeting next Thursday, May 8 at 7:00 p.m..The Transportation Improvement Plan is on the agenda, which will likely include the Rachel Road extension that the City decided to recently add back to the TIP.  

3. Tapteal Greenway will be hosting a Wildlands Walk in Amon Creek Natural Preserve on Saturday, May 17 beginning at 9:00 a.m.. With the pending Hayden Homes development, this will be an opportunity to enjoy the preserve in its current state of peacefulness.

4. It looks like the next City Council meeting that will address the Hayden Homes development, and potentially the Rachel Rd extension, isTuesday, May 20 at 7:00 p.m..  Keep an eye on your email for updates!
