Yamhelas Westsider Trail Design Charrette – MEMBERS ONLY SPECIAL EVENT
Join our design team! Oregon ASLA and the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program (NPS RTCA) are partnering to create a conceptual plan for the Yamhelas Westsider Trail, a 17-mile rails-to-trails project in Oregon’s wine country.
Oregon ASLA invites members to participate in a two-day charrette November 13-14, 2015 in Carlton. We are assembling a team of up to 16 professionals and 8 students. Our work will include site visits along the trail alignment and a day-long charrette with key stakeholders and elected officials to develop conceptual designs for the future trail. The charrette will end with a community open house.
The charrette provides a rare opportunity for Oregon’s landscape architecture community to gather, learn from each other, and lend our expertise and abilities to the beginnings of this regionally significant trail in Yamhill County.
Are you an experienced trail designer? An expert meeting facilitator? Great with graphics?
We are seeking participants with a diversity of knowledge, skills and abilities at all stages of their careers. Participation in the charrette will be based on a competitive selection process. Students, emerging professionals, mid-career and experienced professionals are all encouraged to apply. Applicants must be Oregon ASLA members in good standing.
Meals for both days and overnight accommodations on Friday night, November 13th will be provided through the generosity of the Friends of the Yamhelas Westsider Trail and our host, Ken Wright Cellars.
