Shelton City Commission Resolution No. 994-0210 proposes that voters decide whether to create the Shelton Metropolitan Park District, governed by the Shelton City Commission as the ex officio board of parks commissioners. If created, the district would have all the powers under Chapter 35.61 RCW, and would provide improved parks and recreation services.
