Salmonberry Trail meeting set April 6, 2017

March 27, 2017

Banks OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency will meet in Banks 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 6 to 9 p.m. at the Banks Fire District #13, 13430 NW Main St.

The agenda includes a discussion on the status of rail banking, fundraising efforts, valley segment planning and convening a valley advisory committee, strategic marketing plans and a benefit analysis study.

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.
