No Beaches on Wetlands at Log Boom Park

We the undersigned, request that the US Army Corps of Engineers reject City of Kenmore\'s permit application to the Army Corps of Engineers for a swimming beach at Log Boom Park for the following reasons: * We wish to protect wetlands at Log Boom Park from being damaged or altered because they contribute to the health of the waters at the north end of Lake Washington * We do not want to see our Lake and shoreline spoiled by unnecessary and costly changes (i.e. the fountain and extended swimming beach) * We want to maintain an ecosystem where salmonids can continue to flourish

    7 years ago Comments: It is important to protect remaining wetlands along Lake Washington. At the same time, aquatic recreation is not an unreasonable desire. Can an alternative be developed that would provide recreational opportunities and not harm the wetland

    7 years ago Comments: I have spent a lot of time at Logboom Park over the last 30 years; my family, picnics, etc. Wetlands are far more important than a beach. The same folks that would enjoy a beach would very likely enjoy the habitat (flora & fauna) of a wetland. North Lake Washington is a bit of a mess if you have been there for the last 30 years. Wetlands will help filter and clean it up for all to enjoy. It's pretty obvious if you are familiar over a long period of time with this area. Please make the right, long-term decision for the community. Thank you, Paul Clement
