The Mountlake Terrace City Council recognized Eagle Scout Candidate Gavin Clark at its May 16 meeting.
Gavin Clark completed his Eagle Scout project at the Mountlake Terrace Off-Leash Dog Park located near the Recreation Pavilion at 5303 228th Street SW. “Gavin worked with MLT D.O.G. to construct a retaining wall designed to hold back a hill and offer seating for dog park visitors,” said Parks and Facilities Superintendent Ken Courtmanch, who coordinates projects with prospective Eagle Scouts.
Scouts must plan, organize and direct a project of significant value to benefit the community, demonstrate leadership qualities and obtain approval for their plan from the Park Superintendent and the District Advancement Committee.
Recreation and Parks Advisory Commission member Keith Edholm read the certificate of appreciation as it was presented to Clark.
