Front Porch: Wellington Hills park meeting

Snohomish County Parks and Recreation staff have planned a meeting Tuesday night to get people's thoughts on how to develop the newly acquired Wellington Hills Regional Sports Park.
It's scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Brightwater Education and Community Center at 22509 Highway 9, in Maltby.
The county bought the 100-acre Wellington Hills property from the University of Washington earlier this year for nearly $10 million. The money came from a settlement over King County's Brightwater sewage treatment plant, which required the county to buy land for a regional park.
