Open house meetings on the Salmonberry Corridor concept plan set for Tillamook, Banks and Portland

Sept. 18, 2014

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) invites the public to three open house meetings about the draft concept plan for the Salmonberry Corridor. The draft for developing the Corridor will be presented at the open houses, and community members are encouraged to share their comments. The concept plan is a long-term comprehensive plan to guide resource management and recreational uses along the corridor.

Meeting details:

Tillamook
Sept. 23, 2014, 6-7:30 p.m.
Port of Tillamook Bay, Officer's Mess Hall
6823 Officer's Row

Banks
Sept. 24, 2014, 6-7:30 p.m.
Banks Fire Hall
300 Main Street

Portland

The Corridor is a proposed 86-mile, rail trail that runs from Tillamook to Banks. The route includes 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.
