Start of planning work at Bob and Crystal Rilee Park

CPRD hires WH Pacific to develop master plan

Chehalem Park and Recreation District has hired WH Pacific to develop the master plan for Bob and Crystal Rilee Park on Parrett Mt. The master plan will determine how the District will use the property, from trails to event facilities. Developing the master plan is a progressive process which will take an estimated year to complete. Public input will be sought at various stages throughout.

The first stage of the work is WH Pacific will evaluate the property in order to ensure that natural resources will not be harmed. This first phase of the master planning process will involve mapping the existing trails, performing an environmental assessment of the natural and cultural resources, and preparing a site analysis which will identify special opportunities and environmental constraints. The work will start in March and be completed by June. The District will then present the findings to the public.

WH Pacific, Inc. is a multidisciplinary planning and engineering firm comprised of landscape architects, civil engineers, scientists and surveyors, with local offices in Portland and Salem.
