Current Projects

  1. Campaign for Active Transportation (CAT)

This project page presents the regional effort that has been made to develop a case that answers this question as regional transportation, parks, recreation, and health agencies and organizations contribute to and build upon Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s 2010 Campaign for Active Transportation (CAT).

  2. Coburg Loop Path

    The City of Coburg has recently completed a project with grant funding from the State of Oregon Transportation and Growth Management Program (TGM) to develop a strategy for the creation of a hard surfaced bicycle and pedestrian path network that will be developed in the coming years.

  3. Coburg UGB Expansion Analysis

    The primary purpose of the Coburg Urbanization Update is to estimate the land needed to accommodate residential and employment growth over the next 20 years, and determine whether the city has sufficient land within its current Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) to meet the estimated land needs.

  4. Multi-City Water Resources Assessment Project

    Eight rural cities in 3 counties in Oregon's Willamette River Valley worked together for 3 years to prevent impacts on important water resources as growth occurs. The project provides an example of how multiple jurisdictions can work together on a common issue, as well as some water resource planning tools that may be useful for other cities.
