Whether you are new to IBC or have enjoyed our little piece of Sammamish paradise for many years, it's the time of year when many start spending more time at the beach. As we are in the midst of the trail construction, we can see the future of Inglewood Beach starting to take shape.
The East Lake Sammamish Trail (ELST) project is in full swing, with the typical trail access to the beach closed off. Recognizing our community use for the beach, the county provided wood chip pathway access from both north and south of the trail closures. For more details and FAQs on this project and specifically the portion near our beach, I encourage you to check out what is referred to as the South Sammamish B Segment - Phase 2.
The county has assured that our beach access will not be impacted during trail development, so the beach is open for fun, sun, swimming, and more! Our first community event of the year is the IBC annual meeting on Saturday, June 10th at 10am, so I’m looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces down at the beach. It'll be a great session to enjoy some shared time at the beach, catch-up on monthly board discussions and actions from the past year, share thoughts on trail changes, hear ideas for shaping the future of the beach, and moreover, put those ideas into action by joining the board and monthly meetings.
If you can't make the annual meeting, feel free to reach out to the board ([email protected]) if you have any questions or concerns to raise for the community as a whole that we can discuss together. In the meantime, I hope you have a safe and enjoyable time at the beach this year, and as a reminder, please review our Rules, Terms & Conditions to ensure a fun and respectful beach experience for all community members.
The IBC board is committed to better the beach experience for all by turning ideas into action, and since it's a volunteer-based community effort, we can only do that with your help!
Looking forward to great times and new memories at the beach this year, and hope to see you there. Cheers!
Graham Bury (Interim IBC President)
