Dear Mayor Hales and Members of the Portland City Council,

We are a community of members who care about active, healthy, vibrant recreational opportunities. We believe Portland has the potential to become a recognized and acclaimed haven for off-road cycling.

To achieve that vision, we agree with Commissioner Amanda Fritz – it’s time for a citywide master plan for recreational cycling. In fact, we are decades overdue at this point.

Now is the time to fund a planning process for off-road cycling. We request that City Council designate $200,000 to launch us into that process.

It is past time to meet the overflowing demand for recreational cycling access.

Thank you for your consideration,

Northwest Trail Alliance & Friends
