PORTLAND — A group of six Master of Urban and Regional Planning students from Portland State University are partnering with the planning office of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation to plan a multi-use trail that will improve walkability and connectivity in the community.
The project, Nixyáawii Watikš, aims to connect the Mission community center to Pendleton. The tribes first formalized the project in the 2001 CTUIR Transportation System Plan. The trail plan has shown up in community meeting records as a desire for many years, and now with the help of the PSU students, the trail soon may come to fruition.
