What kind of park should replace the Wellington Hills Golf and Country Club in Woodinville is the subject of a public meeting on Tuesday, May 29 by the Snohomish County Parks and Recreation Department.
The 7 p.m. meeting at the Brightwater Education Center (located at the Brightwater Treatment Plant on Hwy 9) is to gather public input on the proposed park. The plan is part of a mitigation agreement with King County for the Brightwater sewage treatment plant which opened last year about a mile from the golf course in Wellington hills, according to Brian Perry, Snohomish County Executive Director.
The Wellington golf course in Woodinville will close in September after being sold by the University of Washington to Snohomish County for $9.7 million. Part of the negotiations and the settlement agreement conducted in 2003 between King County and Snohomish County mandated the acquisition of a property within the four miles radius from the Brightwater wastewater treatment plant to build an athletic facility with at least four fields with lights for night games.
