Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency to host annual Salmonberry Coalition meeting Oct. 7

Sept. 14, 2016

BUXTON, OR -- The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA) will host its annual Salmonberry Coalition meeting Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Mt. Dale Meeting Hall at LL Stub Stewart State Park, 30380 NW Hwy 47, in Buxton.

The agenda will include updates on current ongoing trail projects, including the Salmonberry Trail Brownfields Study, the Tillamook County Local Plan Adoption Project and the Coast Segment Planning Study, as well as updates on current fundraising efforts. There will be a brief STIA business meeting at the end of the program discussing status of the railbanking effort.

The Salmonberry Coalition is a stakeholder group consisting of public and private partners focused on making the Salmonberry Trail a reality. The 84-mile Salmonberry Trail corridor will connect the cities of Tillamook and Banks and cross through two counties, passing by the Oregon coastline, fisheries, farmland and the rugged Oregon Coast Range. The route follows the Port of Tillamook Bay Railway, which closed in 2007 after experiencing catastrophic storm damage. The STIA was established to promote and facilitate coordinated direction and guidance in planning, development and maintenance of the multi-use trail.
