After pouring over the proposed Smith Rock Master Plan maps and descriptions to provide feedback to Oregon Parks and Rec before the December 15 deadline, we were still a tad confused.

The Smith Rock Master Plan is ready for public input once again. The third in a 4-part series of public meetings, Oregon Parks and Rec will provide a revised plan based on the three alternatives that the public, project stakeholders, and OPRD’s Core Team weighed in on between October 2017 and June 2018. There are now confirmed locations for the public open houses in both Redmond and Portland.
