HISTORIC TRAILS COUNCIL TO MEET IN COOS BAY
The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council (OHTAC) will meet in Coos
Bay at 8 a.m., April 21 at the Red Lion Hotel, 1313 N. Bayshore Dr. The
meeting is open to the public.
In 1998, the Governor established OHTAC to oversee and provide advice
on Oregon’s16 historic trails. Made up of nine governor-appointed
volunteer-citizens, the Council works together to advise the Governor
and to locate, preserve and encourage the use of the historic trails by
Oregonians and visitors to our state. The Council meets three times a
year to explore at least one of the 16 designated historic trails.
Guided by local residents and/or public agency experts, the Council
members evaluate and record trail conditions and discuss opportunities
for the marking, interpretation and protection of the trails.
The Council will invite public comments. To review the meeting agenda,

accessible to people with disabilities. Arrange special accommodations
72-hours in advance by calling (503) 986-0690.
