The Cottonwood Canyon adventure continues (2010)
More chances coming to help plan our newest state park
What size footprints should OPRD create at Cottonwood Canyon State Park? How do we balance the natural with the developed?
More than 1,000 Oregonians have shared their opinions online and at previous public meetings. You have another chance to chime in before OPRD produces a draft plan for developing and managing this rugged place.
Public meetings are scheduled Nov. 15 in Moro (Sherman Junior/Senior High School Public Library, 65912 High School Loop), Nov. 16 in Condon (Veteran’s Memorial Hall, 120 S. Main St.) and Nov. 22 in Portland (Tryon Creek State Natural Area Visitor Center, 11321 S.W. Terwilliger Blvd.). All three meetings will run from 6-8 p.m.
The meetings will continue to focus on how to offer interpretive, educational and recreation trail experiences while safeguarding the park’s natural, cultural and scenic treasures.
Can’t attend a meeting, but still want to share your thoughts? Go to the Cottonwood Canyon blog. Besides a place to comment, you’ll discover links to more information about the park, a park map, and a photo gallery and videos. (Also check out the April 14, 2010 Go Guide story.)
