SULTAN BASIN RECONVEYANCE
Snohomish County filed a request to reconvey approximately 150 acres of State Forest Transfer Trust land in the Sultan Basin from the State of Washington to the County. The Board of Natural Resources reviewed the proposal and approved the reconveyance on December 7, 2010. The transaction closed on October 18, 2011 and the transfer is complete.

A county with State Forest Transfer Trust lands managed by DNR may ask for the land to be returned ('reconveyed') to it for use as a public park. RCW 79.22.300
Two public meetings were held, one in October 2008 and the other on July 13, 2010.
After reviewing the proposal and the information presented about the project, DNR determined that the reconveyance request was consistent with the State's Outdoor Recreation Plan.
