The Linn County Parks Department will manage Oregon's Cascadia State Park, leading to what is hoped will be a transfer of the historic 253-acre site to county ownership next year, according to the Gazette-Times.
Linn County Parks Director Brian Carroll said the county will be reimbursed for services with income generated by the park’s campsites.
Carroll and Linn County Commissioner Will Tucker have been working with Oregon State Parks on a possible transfer of ownership for about six years.
“My goal is that before I leave office, this project will be completed,” Tucker said. “We had hoped to complete this already, but we also want to make sure we clean up any restrictive deeds that are on the park. We want a clear title.”
Tucker added that he believes campground use will increase because it will be added to the county’s online reservation system.
Carroll said the one-year contract will run from March 2019 to March 2020.
