Salmonberry Coalition to meet Sept. 2 in Tillamook

Sept. 4, 2014

​The Salmonberry Coalition will meet Sept. 12, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Port of Tillamook Bay's Officer's Mess Hall, 6823 Officer's Row, Tillamook, Ore. 97141. The scheduled quarterly meeting and public meeting will include updates on the concept planning process and grant applications, as well as an update from the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust.

The Salmonberry Coalition is a steering committee of public and private partners, including local governments and elected leaders. The committee weighs recommendations on re-linking communities along the Banks to Tillamook rail corridor, and looks at options converting the non-functioning portions of rail line to a trail and adding a trail adjacent to the viable sections of rail. This unique 86-mile recreational opportunity, steeped in history, natural beauty and adventure, can connect urban and rural Oregon - the Portland area to the Coast - while tapping into a wide network of existing recreation trail and facilities, educational opportunities and heritage sites.

For more information about the meeting or about the Salmonberry Coalition, please contact Rocky Houston, State Trails Coordinator, at (503) 986-0750, rocky.houston@oregon.gov.
