Public open houses on Salmonberry Corridor Master Plan

June 18, 2014

​​Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is holding two public open houses about the master 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: June 24, 2014
Time: 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Port of Tillamook Bay, Officer's Mess Hall

Banks
Date: June 25, 2014
Time: 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Banks Fire Hall
300 Main Street

The open house will display possible alternatives for developing the Corridor, and seek feedback on the planning and design efforts so far. The master plan is a long-term comprehensive plan to guide resource management and recreational uses along the corridor.
