Public invited to participate in scoping meeting for Westport Light State Park

The City of Westport and Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (Parks) will be co-hosting an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Scoping open house for the public. This is an opportunity for the public to learn more about and participate in the State Environment Policy Act (SEPA) EIS process for the Westport Golf Links proposal at Westport Light State Park (WLSP).

Westport Golf, Inc. proposes a Scottish links-style golf course within the boundaries of WLSP. This proposal includes the development of a long-term concession agreement with Parks that would allow Westport Golf, Inc. to develop, operate and maintain the golf course and associated facilities. The City of Westport, as the acting SEPA lead agency for this proposal, has determined that an EIS will be required for this proposal under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c).

The EIS Scoping open house will be accessible both in person and virtually through live stream. A more detailed Scoping notice is provided on the City's website.

Comments regarding the scope of the EIS for Westport Golf Links/WSSP will be accepted through Thurs., May 18 and can be submitted online or by writing to the SEPA Responsible Official at the address below:
