Trail Planning Meeting

The City of Grants Pass will be conducting a meeting on Weds, January 15th at 1:30pm in Council Chambers to discuss next steps in trail planning for Dollar Mountain. 

The City was awarded a technical assistance grant through the National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program (NPS-RTCA). This program supports community-led outdoor recreation projects across the nation

At the upcoming meeting we will be reviewing project goals, vision, scope and timeline. We will also be reviewing a draft survey and data collection needs. If you are interested in being a part of the process we are seeking input from community members, user group representatives and nearby property owners.

A pre-meeting will be held at 1pm with details on what has been accomplished to date and how the planning process works.

Burn Update 

Prescribed burns will start on November 26, 2019 and continue through March 1, 2020. See the Prescribed Burn Notice (PDF) for more information.

Update 10/31/2019

The City was notified that we have been awarded a technical assistance grant from the National Parks Service for the development of a master plan for Dollar Mountain.

The National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (NPS-RTCA) program supports community-led natural resource conservation and outdoor recreation projects across the nation.

Their planning work often leads to successful grant applications for the construction of trails. Part of what they do is effectively engage the public as part of the process. One of their recent Oregon projects was awarded the Excellence in Citizen Involvement Award from the American Planning Association. Leahnette Rivers from Columbia City worked with the NPS-RTCA team on the McBride Creek Trail project said “The RTCA’s expertise and experience with similar projects has been very helpful to us. Without their assistance, the project wouldn’t be where it is today and that includes a recent grant award.”
