Salmonberry Trail meeting set Feb. 3, 2017 in Salem

Jan. 17, 2017

Salem OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency will meet in Salem 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 Tillamook Conference Room at the Oregon Department of Forestry, 2600 State Street, Salem.

The agenda includes discussion on the status of rail banking, fundraising efforts, coastal segment planning and a preliminary discussion regarding rail salvage.

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.

For more information, contact Dennis Wiley, Salmonberry Trail project manager, at 503-986-0723 or dennis.wiley@oregon.gov.
