SNOHOMISH COUNTY – The Meadowdale Park Estuary and Beach Restoration has won a VISION 2050 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council. The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows.
“Meadowdale Park is an important and beautiful community asset that can now be enjoyed for generations of people and wildlife to come,” said Josh Brown, Executive Director of PSRC. “The restoration improved access for people with mobility concerns, created a railroad bridge to improve safety, and restored an estuary linking to Puget Sound.”
The award will be presented at the Snohomish County Council Meeting on July 19, 2023.
This project happened due to the partnership of the Snohomish County Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office, BNSF Railway Company, The Tulalip Tribes, Snohomish County Marine Resources Committee, NOAA Fisheries, Federal Rail Administration, WRIA, Salmon Recovery Council, Sno-King Watershed and The Edmonds Stream Team.

The region’s cities, counties, Tribes, ports, agencies, businesses, and communities have worked together to develop VISION 2050 to prepare for this growth and serve as a guide for sustaining a healthy environment, thriving communities and a strong economy.
