The meeting will begin with a presentation on the recently completed Salmonberry Trail Brownfields Study for Tillamook County. Understanding the environmental conditions and risk, and developing cleanup strategies for the rail corridor are important steps in the development of the Salmonberry Trail. Additional presentations will be made on the status of the current Valley Segment Masterplan Study, as well as the newly developed Strategic Marketing Plan. The presentations will be followed by a STIA business meeting.
The Salmonberry Coalition, formed in 2013 during the early development of a feasibility study and conceptual plan, is a wide stakeholder group consisting of public and private partners focused on making the Salmonberry Trail a reality. In addition to its more frequent business meetings, STIA hosts this annual information session for the Coalition in the fall. STIA is a direct outgrowth of the original Salmonberry Coalition, and is the entity responsible for promoting and leading planning, development and maintenance of the proposed multi-use trail.
The Salmonberry Trail will connect eight cities and two counties, passing by the Oregon coastline, fisheries, farmland and the rugged and forested Oregon Coast Range. The route follows the Port of Tillamook Bay Railway, which closed in 2007 after experiencing catastrophic storm damage.
