Grand Coulee and Electric City officials will meet at 2 p.m. Monday, June 16, to discuss ways they can work together on a walking path that could extend across the causeway south of Electric City and through their two respective cities. The meeting will be held in Grand Coulee's council chambers.
Gray & Osborne, the engineering firm for both cities, will also meet in an effort to put together a proposal that would allow them to apply for a grant to help with the expense of creating the path.
The cities are not going into the meeting with preconceived ideas of what might be possible to do.
The area in question is noted for the many walkers who take different parts of the described area, both walking and riding bicycles.
A U.S. Bureau of Reclamation-maintained path already connects Grand Coulee and Coulee Dam.
