The Columbia River Gorge Commission has received an application from the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife for improvements to the Rowland Lake access site.
Included in the proposal is paved parking for two vehicles, with a paved trail to an existing rest room facility. Also proposed are a paved parking area that meets standards for the Americans With Disabilities Act, an access trail, gangways, and dock.
The parcel is located four miles west of Lyle between State Route 14 and County Road 1230. It is within the Special Management Area of the National Scenic Area and is in a zone designated for agriculture.
The Columbia River Gorge Commission will review the request for consistency with the National Scenic Area Act.
The deadline for submitting public comments on this proposal is Aug. 5.
Comments on the proposal may be mailed to the Gorge Commission office at P.O. Box 730, White Salmon, Wash., 98672.
