May is Building Safety Month

Blue Mountain Region Trails Project - In an unprecedented regional effort, the cities of College Place, Dayton, Milton-Freewater, Waitsburg, and Walla Walla, joined forces with the counties of Columbia, Umatilla, and Walla Walla, the county health departments, the Partnership for Greater Burbank, the ports of Columbia and Walla Walla, as well as the Walla Walla Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Community Council to develop a "Blue Mountain Region Trails - Ridges, Towns, and Rivers" plan that will span all local jurisdictions. The desired project outcome is the development of a community driven, and locally supported regionwide non-motorized trail and transportation network that will integrate existing and planned urban sidewalks and bike routes with urban and regional trails. This network will provide access to outdoor recreation opportunities, increased walking and biking options, and connectivity among community centers and cultural, historical, and natural resource sites throughout the region.
