Timber – Community residents will meet in Timber to discuss the Salmonberry Trail with local officials and project managers on Wednesday, April 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Timber Fire Station on Cochran Road.
The event, organized by community leader Trinity Herr, is focused on trail updates as they pertain to Timber and other area unincorporated Western Washington County communities such as Scofield and Strassel.
According to a Facebook event set up by Herr, the meeting was planned after the Valley Segment Planning Committee met earlier this year.
A committee largely composed of local Washington County community members, the Valley Segment Planning Committee has toured portions of the Salmonberry Trail route and done other planning work, and will be responsible for more in-depth planning of the segment of the Salmonberry Trail from Banks to Reehers Camp.
According to Herr, candidates for the Washington County District 4 Commissioner seat, Jerry Willey and Kimberly Culbertson, have been invited to the meeting as well.
Most recently, the Salmonberry Trail cleared a major hurdle after a lease agreement for trail use was signed on April 6 between the Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency and the Port of Tillamook Bay, the owner of the railroad right-of-way.
The meeting will be located at the Timber Fire Station on Cochran Road on Wednesday, April 18, from 7 to 9 p.m.
