Salmonberry Trail meeting set August 5th

The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA) will meet at the Port of Tillamook Bay, August 5th, 2016 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 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Port of Tillamook Bay Conference Room, 4000 Blimp BLVD., Tillamook, Oregon 97141.

The agenda includes updates on fundraising, report from the Ownership Work Group, status of coastal planning efforts and concerns regarding the level of use of the Canyon segment. 
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.
