Salmonberry Trail meeting set Dec. 11

Nov. 24, 2015

Salem, OR-- The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency will meet in Salem on Dec. 11 to discuss adding a board director and other updates on planning for the proposed 86-mile Salmonberry Trail that will connect the cities of Tillamook and Banks. The meeting will be from 1-5 p.m. at the Tillamook Conference Room at the Oregon Department of Forestry, 2600 State Street, Salem.

The agenda includes a proposal to add the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde as a nonvoting director to the agency. Other agenda items include updates on the rail banking process and local government involvement. The meeting is open to the public.

The Salmonberry Trail will connect eight cities and 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 massive storm damage. The 11-member Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency was established to promote and facilitate coordinated direction and guidance in the planning, development and maintenance of the multi-use trail.
