WDFW NEWS RELEASE
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091
http://wdfw.wa.gov/
March 7, 2018
Contact: Ross Huffman, WDFW, 509-457-9313

Southcentral "green dot" road management
public meeting scheduled March 22 in Selah
YAKIMA -- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host a public meeting on Thursday, March 22, in Selah about changes to "green dot" road management in southcentral Washington.
Both agencies will provide information and take public comments on updates and proposed changes at the meeting, which will run from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Senior Room of the Selah Civic Center, 216 S. 1st St., in Selah. 
The green dot road management system marks roads in Yakima and Kittitas counties that are open to public motorized vehicle use. Marked with a round green reflector on a white route marker, these roads provide access to camping, hunting, off-road vehicle riding and other recreational activities.
Proposed changes include the addition of green dot roads on the Quilomene and Whiskey Dick units of the L.T. Murray Wildlife Area, said Ross Huffman, WDFW southcentral region lands operations manager. Developing a green dot road system in the "green gate" area of the Quilomene Unit is an objective of the interagency Naneum-to-Columbia River Recreation Plan.
Updates include the loss of public access across private land adjacent to the Ahtanum State Forest, said Joe Smith, DNR southeast region forest operations manager.
Huffman and Smith note that road use across private property adjacent to the L.T. Murray Wildlife Area and Naneum Ridge State Forest could also be affected.
Road management on the Colockum, Wenas, and Oak Creek road management areas will also be discussed at the meeting.
Additional information about the green dot road system is available at https://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/wildlife_areas/green_dot/
 
Persons with disabilities who need to receive this information in an alternative format or who need reasonable accommodations to participate in WDFW-sponsored public meetings or other activities may contact Dolores Noyes by phone (360-902-2349), TTY (360-902-2207), or email (dolores.noyes@dfw.wa.gov).

So are they closing more roads or opening more up?

Is this about a private land owner blocking access?

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Probably the latter regarding the Cowiche Unit.

I play by the rules, and sure enjoy riding the green dots. Hope they don't shut it down.

The green dot roads pass through parcels of private and they’ve decided they can’t do that w/o permission and none of the land owners are willing to grant permission. So essentially one entire drainage is now inaccessible to the publuc

If property was sold without easement on to public land then a suite should be filed against all the parties involved.Easement is needed so that these things don't happen and if purposely done the involved should be held liable.  :twocents:

Who on this site owns property and wasn't forced have an easement on their property?
