Port of Olympia Park Proposal

By Karen Robes Meeks

The public is invited to weigh in on a proposal to rename the Port of Olympia's East Bay Trail and NorthPoint Park after the late Billy Frank Jr.

The 1.2-mile trail stretches from Olympia/Marine Drive to KGY Radio station and ends at the park, which overlooks two canoe landings. The groundbreaking is scheduled to take place in March.

A pair of public open houses are set to take place at 6 p.m. on January 4 at the Olympia Community Center and on January 9 at the Lacey Conference Center. The public comment period will close on January 12.
