PATH PLANNING COMMITTEE

Our Mission
The Path Planning Committee advises the Board of Directors and operations personnel on conditions of the paths and other public spaces at the Oregon Country Fair, emphasizes the importance of the public Fair-goers' experiences, identifies needs and goals of Fair family and the public, and recommends changes and additions to enhance and improve public spaces and infrastructure. The committee is charged with designating replacement space to compensate for booth areas lost to river erosion or other causes.

Our Meetings
We usually meet thirteen days after the first Monday of the month. Our meetings usually start at noon and last three hours.The committee is a conduit for the Fair family to give voice to path concerns that are conveyed to the Board and operations personnel. Anyone can make comments or recommendations during the "Public Comments" agenda item or during the discussion of other agenda items.
