The Portland Off-road Cycling Master Plan will provide a citywide vision and plan for a system of off-road cycling trails and facilities where kids, adults and families can ride for fun, exercise and to experience nature in the city. It will make recommendations for the future improvement and management of these trails and facilities, based on community needs and input, site opportunities and constraints, and best practices in design, development and management.
In addition to a broad community outreach and engagement process, the project will be guided by a project advisory committee made up of community representatives, including trail and park users and Portlanders with interests, skills, knowledge and expertise in the areas of off-road cycling, environmental stewardship, trail design or management, outdoor recreation, business, tourism and health. The City is particularly interested in including committee members who might be able to contribute perspectives or experiences from historically under-represented or under-served communities, such as communities of color, Portlanders with limited-English proficiency, low-income residents, youth and people with disabilities.
Committee meetings will be held approximately once a month on weekday evenings. Specific meeting dates and times will be selected based on committee member availability. Translation, accommodations and childcare will be provided with advance notice.
