The new Clackamas "trolley trail"
About $4.2 million in local and grant funds have been awarded for the design and construction of the trail. This funding is from a variety of sources. The largest portion is from Federal Transportation and funds for bicycle and pedestrian projects. These funds are awarded by Metro and administered through the Oregon Department of Transportation.
It's a 6 mile long dirt path that will cost $4.2 million dollars. Why does a dirt path cost so much? Maybe because they really really need a lot of public art to go with it!
Clackamas County Arts Alliance and North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District contracted a professional planning consultant to develop the Trolley Trail Public Art and Amenities Guide, which will be integrated into the existing Trail Master Plan.
Because government can't make a path through the woods without a professional planning art consultant.
