Public Open House Meetings on Salmonberry Corridor Concept Plan

Salmonberry – Ad- all

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is holding three public open house meetings about the concept plan for the Salmonberry Corridor. The Corridor is a proposed 86-mile, rail trail that runs from Tillamook to Banks. The route encompasses the Port of Tillamook Bay Railway, which closed in 2007 after massive storm damage. All together, the Salmonberry Corridor could connect eight cities and two counties, linking the Oregon coast to the interior Willamette Valley through spectacular and rugged Oregon scenery.

Meeting details:

Tillamook
Date: Sept. 23, 2014
Time: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Location: POTB, Officer’s Mess Hall
6823 Officer’s Row, Tillamook

Banks
Date: Sept. 24, 2014
Time: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Location: Banks Fire Hall
300 Main Street, Banks

Portland
Date: Sept. 25, 2014
Time: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Location: Metro Regional Center, 600 Grand Ave, Room 370, Portland

The open houses will the draft concept plan for developing the Corridor, and seek public comments on the draft concept plan. The concept plan is a long-term comprehensive plan to guide resource management and recreational uses along the corridor.

    I’m just a very recreational cycler (57 yrs old) but a year ago my son and I rode the Katy Trail in Missouri (245 miles in 5 days). It was one of the best things to do! The only bad thing about that trail was that it was in Missouri!! It would get much more use in Oregon than in Missouri! I have done the Vernonia-Banks trail and am excited for the Salmonberry Corridor to be a reality. Make it so!

    This would be awesome. So excited about a cycling link to the coast without traffic. Let’s hope it becomes reality.
