The public is invited to bring their ideas to an open house on Saturday, May 19, for the section of Katy Trail State Park between Matson and Portland. The information meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Katy Trail State Park's Augusta trailhead.
Recent accomplishments and future plans will be highlighted during the open meeting, including drainage and trail surface repairs in the trail. Visitors are invited to share comments on the site’s services and operations. Information about volunteer opportunities will be available.
