Salmonberry Trail meeting set June 3 in Banks

May 16, 2016

Banks OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA) will meet at the Banks Fire District June 3 to discuss issues related to ownership and management of the proposed 84 mile Salmonberry Trail corridor that will connect the cities of Tillamook and Banks. The meeting will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Banks Fire District, 13430 NW Main St.

The agenda includes a work session on adopting STIA bylaws. Other discussion items include updates on fundraising, rail banking, establishing trail segment planning committees and possible future Oregon Solutions work plans.

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 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.
