Proposed Sadie Creek Reconveyance
Clallam County has filed a request to reconvey approximately 320 acres of State Forest Transfer Trust land, West of Joyce, from the State of Washington to the County. In June 2011, the Department of Ecology determined that the Reconveyance proposal is subject to SEPA review (i.e. is not exempt) and that Clallam County is the designated lead agency.Map of Proposed Sadie Creek Reconveyance

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).
A public meeting about the proposed reconveyance was held on September 23, 2010 in Port Angeles.
Once the SEPA review is completed and if DNR determines that the county's reconveyance request is consistent with the state's outdoor recreation plan, it will be presented to the state Board of Natural Resources for their consideration at a regularly scheduled monthly meeting.
