            Some lake residents have inquired about a Bike and Walking Trail around Lake Washington, this is a county matter and there were discussion about trails near and around the lakes several years ago.

Discussion: Steve Grotbo and (wife) Elizabeth Walke are doing restoration on 167 of 223 feet of shoreline on their property.  The DNR offered to pay 75% of the cost if they included 75% of their shoreline.  Steve and Elizabeth won a drawing for $1500 last year that they are applying to this project.  Steve was asking the LWIA Board to sign on supporting of this project.  The Board agreed to be a sponsor for this project.  Discussed how we could use this to help other lake residents with ideas about shoreline restoration.  Steve agreed to reimburse the board for expenses paid for by the board during this project.
