Salmonberry Trail meeting set February 2nd
Salem, OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA) will meet at State Capitol in Salem on February 2nd to discuss issues related to ownership and management of the proposed 84 mile Salmonberry Trail corridor that will connect the cities of Tillamook and Banks. The meeting will be from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Capitol in Room 50 and will start with an executive session prior to opening the public portion of the meeting (about 30 minutes).
The agenda includes an update on fundraising efforts, outcomes of a benefits study done by Portland State University, status of a proposed trail use and lease agreement with the Port of Tillamook Bay and an update on Valley segment planning. The Salmonberry Trail will connect eight cities and two counties, passing by the Oregon coastline, fisheries, farmland and the rugged Oregon Coast Range. The route follows the Port of Tillamook Bay Railway, which closed in 2007 after massive storm damage. The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency was established to promote and facilitate coordinated direction and guidance in the planning, development and maintenance of the multi-use trail.
