June 2023 Proclaimed as 40th Anniversary of the 40-Mile Loop 

Lou Reynoldson, Jim Sjulin, and Walter Valenta presented to Portland City Council on June 14, 2023. A proclamation, presented by Mayor Ted Wheeler and introduced by Commissioner Dan Ryan, stated, in part:

“… we call upon all of our local government partners to recommit to the completion of the 40 Mile Loop which stands today at 70% completed. … and recognize that the 40 Mile Loop and the Regional Trail System are integral parts of a safe, healthy, and sustainable urban ecosystem for all community members and visitors to enjoy.”

It is meaningful and exciting for the City to formally recognize the importance of the Loop. We look forward to continuing to advocate with our regional partners to close the gaps and keep the loop maintained.
