***Please fill out this online survey by Sunday January 31st.***

Background info:

NWTA (Northwest Trail Alliance formerly PUMP) has been an active participant throughout the planning process of a major park redesign for Powell Butte. Members of NWTA have been working with City Parks Dept to create a plan that enhances mountain bike access and improves the trail conditions. Currently we are in the final phase of the planning process and need your support (i.e. we need your voice as a mountain biker). I hope that you take five minutes to complete the survey and influence the final plan for Powell Butte.
