Salmonberry Trail meeting set Feb. 5 in Salem

Jan. 19, 2016

Salem OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency will meet in Salem on Feb. 5 to discuss options for 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 discussions on local government involvement with the proposed trail and review of bylaws regarding establishment of Trail Advisory Committees. There will also be a work session for adopting bylaws for the Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency.

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.
