BRIEFLY: WURA forms subcommittee

By Observer staff January 13, 2016 10:17 am

ELGIN — The Wallowa/Union Railroad Authority decided to create a subcommittee of three members to discuss the implementation of the Rails-with-Trails concept at its January meeting Tuesday night at the Elgin depot.

Only five of the eight members were present Tuesday night so no official action could be taken at the meeting, but a committee was formed to take the public comment previously given about the Rails-with-Trails plan and look at what the next steps are. 

It’s no easy task to add trails alongside a 63-mile railway because the state and federal government heavily regulate railways, according to WURA board member and Union County Commissioner Mark Davidson.

“We need to make sure we don’t end up with a noncompliance plan,” Davidson said.

Davidson, along with board members Stephen Adams and Susan Roberts, volunteered to sit on the subcommittee.
