ROSS

CEDAR/SAMAMMISH WATERSHED SCOPING

EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL FOR AN OPEN SPACE STRATEGY

In the summer and fall of 2010, the Green Futures Lab and the Northwest Center for Livable Communities completed the Scoping Phase (Phase I) for the ROSS with financial support from The Bullitt Foundation. During the Scoping Phase, the ROSS staff and project team conducted a watershed scale study of the lower Cedar River Watershed to determine a preliminary approach for the ROSS and used lessons from the study to develop a road map for the regional scale work.

This work provided a solid foundation for the 4-county ROSS by building enthusiastic participation and engagement from key collaborators, providing essential insights about next steps, and testing watershed scale strategy development. Additional work is needed in the Cedar-Sammamish (WRIA 8) watershed to develop and refine proposals into a full Watershed Open Space Strategy (WOSS).

The scoping process has been critical to the success of the ROSS.
