The Port McNeill city council reported that Western Forest Products Inc. made a substantial land donation for public usage opportunities as directed by the Town of Port McNeill. The donation is for three parcels of forested land, specifically 347, 363, and 389 Cedar Street. The area is part of the popular trail known locally as the “Nature Trail.” …In addition to being an “active transportation” route, the trail is also unfortunately known for underage smoking, litter, and graffiti. The staff report notes “the purpose and intent of the land is for public use and parks which will support outdoor recreation and community gathering. This donation is the result of the long standing, collaborative working relationship between the town and Western. Signage acknowledging the donation, along with a public event celebrating this donation, will be scheduled in the near future.
