Salmonberry Trail meeting set June 2

May 16, 2017

Tillamook OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA) will meet in Tillamook on June 2, 2017 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 Officer's Mess Hall at the Port of Tillamook Bay, 6825 Officer's Row.

The agenda includes updates on fundraising efforts, a marketing study and a benefit study; status of a proposed rail banking agreement; and review of the upcoming trail planning study for the easternmost 20 miles of the corridor from Banks to Tillamook State Forest Reehers Camp.

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.
