Kingfisher Sanctuary or the Warbling Vireo Birdwatch Field? What about the No-Dogs Allowed wildlife park? The city wants to hear from anyone who has an idea for the area, which is rich in birds and other wildlife.
"We are not trying to name it after a person. We are trying to name it to something related to the wildlife or geography of the area," project manager Ann Stanton said.
The city plans to save a 24-acre former sewage lagoon and privately owned wetlands located immediately to the west of the current sewage treatment plant, along the Snohomish River west of Highway 9.
More than 140 bird species have been identified, including great blue herons, red-tailed hawks, swallows, ducks and teal.
Currently, staff is developing recommendations on amenities and long terms uses of the part of land that is publicly owned, Stanton said.
Suggestions should be sent to Stanton at City Hall, 116 Union Ave. or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 29.
The Wildlife Refuge Master Plan Steering Committee will make a recommendation to the City Council in May. The park's master plan will be voted on in June.
