Metropolitan King County Council Vice Chair Reagan Dunn introduced legislation to permanently preserve nine properties along Molasses Creek on Aug. 28.
This proposed ordinance directs the King County Conservation Futures Oversight Committee to prioritize these parcels for conservation, a media release stated.
The nine properties are located near the intersection of 140th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 180th Street along the Molasses Creek.
“These properties along Molasses Creek hold potential for both conservation and recreation purposes,” said Dunn in the release. “I look forward to working with the community and King County Conservation Futures to preserve these properties for both the local Fairwood community and for the larger Cedar River Watershed.”
The release added some portions of Molasses Creek are already managed as open space as part of the Soos Creek Regional Park and Trail.
