Salmonberry Coalition meeting – November 14, 2014 (Banks)

November 5, 2014

The Salmonberry Coalition is meeting in Banks, Oregon on November 14, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Banks Fire Hall, 300 Main Street, Banks, OR. This is a scheduled quarterly meeting and is a public meeting. The Salmonberry Coalition’s agenda includes a review of the final draft Concept Plan. The Salmonberry Corridor Concept Plan (final draft) will be available for review online on November 7, 2014 at http://www.salmonberrycorridor.wordpress.com .

The Salmonberry Coalition is a steering committee involving public and private partners and anchored in Tillamook County by the Port of Tillamook Bay, local government and elected leaders to make recommendations on re-linking the communities along the rail corridor – from Banks to Tillamook – by converting the no-longer functional portions of rail line to a trail and adding a trail adjacent to the viable sections of rail. This unique 86-mile recreational opportunity, steeped in history, natural beauty and adventure, can connect urban and rural Oregon – the Portland area to the Coast – while tapping into a wide network of existing recreation trail and facilities, educational opportunities and heritage sites.

For more information about the meeting or about the Salmonberry Coalition, please contact Rocky Houston, State Trails Coordinator, at (503) 986-0750, rocky.houston@oregon.gov .

    How many pedestrians are estimated to use the corridor annually? Also, what is the view on placing pedestrians closer to some industrial operations in regards to safety? Who is liable?Thank you.
