Oregon Recreational Trails Advisory Council to review Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway proposal Feb. 12

Feb. 1, 2016

The Oregon Recreational Trails Advisory Council will review a proposed state scenic bikeway in Wheeler County at their Feb. 12 meeting. The meeting will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Headquarters, 725 Summer St NE, Suite C, Salem.

The agenda includes reviewing a proposal for designating a 130-mile route through the Painted Hills as the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway. The council invites public comments.

The Oregon Recreational Trails Advisory Council (ORTAC) was established by the Legislature in 1971 to advise the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and to promote non-motorized trail recreation and development in Oregon. The council is made up of seven volunteer members appointed by the Oregon Park and Recreation Commission to represent the five Oregon congressional districts. Council members meet four times annually in different locations across the state.

For more information about the meeting or about ORTAC, contact Rocky Houston, State Trails Coordinator, at 503-986-0750 and rocky.houston@oregon.gov.
