Klamath Greenways Foundation, along with others, has initiated a discussion on the development of a Master Plan for the Link River Canyon. As part of that process, Alta Planning of Portland came to Klamath to moderate a discussion between many of the stakeholders, as well as citizens. It is just the first step in ascertaining the need and enthusiasm for this process within the community. More than 40 folks participated in the informal meeting. To find out more about it, read the Herald and News article. The moderated discussion was sponsored by Klamath Greenways, Pacificorp, Sky Lakes Medical Center, Smith Bates Marcomm Solutions and Klamath Watershed Partnership. We’ll be posting more here as we work through this process.
Klamath Greenways Foundation, among others, is interested in developing a long range plan for the Link River Canyon. The possibility and the process are in their infancy, but if you are interested in being involved, or in just making your thoughts known, click on the Link River Query, and answer the questions.
