Oregon Recreation Trails Advisory Council to meet July 21 in Astoria

June 28, 2017

Astoria OR -- The Oregon Recreation Trails Advisory Council (ORTAC) will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 21 at the Holiday Inn Express, 204 West Marine Drive in Astoria. The council invites public comments during the morning session. Local trail advocates and land managers will present information about trail projects and initiatives in the area.

ORTAC will also seek public comment on the designation of a new state Scenic Bikeway near Prineville. The proposed Crooked River Canyon Scenic Bikeway is a scenic 17-mile one-way route that starts in Prineville and winds its way up the Crooked River to Prineville Reservoir. Citizens interested in providing public comment, but are unable to attend the public meeting, can provide written comment to Alex Phillips, Bikeways and Waterways Coordinator with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) at alex.phillips@oregon.gov.

ORTAC was established by the Legislature in 1971 to advise OPRD and to promote non-motorized trail recreation and development in Oregon. The Council is made up of seven volunteer members appointed by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission to represent the five Oregon congressional districts. The Council meets four times annually in different locations across the state. For more information about the meeting or about ORTAC, contact David Stipe, Planning + Design Manager, at 503.986.0740, david.stipe@oregon.gov.
