Location: The Watershed at Hillsdale (Bertha Court & Capitol Highway)
Remember: no parking at the Watershed—carpool, bike or hike!

Action Item postponed from November 3 — Trail Naming / Buhler Cutoff
“That the 950 to 1000 foot trail recently constructed and graveled by SWTrails (in 8 days!) located in the Homestead NA which connects SW Terwilliger and the bus stop and pedestrian crosswalk at 4900 SW Barbur Blvd be named the “Buhler Cutoff”, in honor of Lee Buhler a long time trails activist, volunteer worker, volunteer recruiter, hike leader and recording secretary.  We also urge the Portland Parks Department to erect signage to make this important connection visible on both Barbur and Terwilliger. The trail meets Barbur opposite the Rasmussen Village Apartments.  The trail meets Terwilliger about 4/10 mile north of the Chart House, at the picnic area at the second turn out/parking area north of the Chart House.” (motion made, seconded, approved 8 in favor, 3 opposed).
