Oregon Passenger Rail Leadership Council

Leadership Council

Oregon Passenger Rail Leadership Council 

The Leadership Council met on Dec. 17, 2013 in Salem to make a recommendation on which alternatives to carry into the environmental impact statement and outline an approach for a conceptual high speed rail plan.
 
Governor Kitzhaber created a Leadership Council of primarily elected officials from the Willamette Valley to advise the Governor and the Oregon Transportation Commission on a preferred alignment for inter-city passenger rail improvements that will become a foundation for the future to make Oregon more competitive in finding funding for future projects to our freight and passenger rail service in Oregon.
