Tram Project Delayed
It is with joy that the City of Dunsmuir has decided to respond to the Notice of Funds Availability with two applications of their own for micro business development and infrastructure repairs.
It is with sadness that the NOFA this round limits a jurisdiction to two activities, including a Planning and Technical Assistance application.
Many people, organizations and companies have supported the idea of the Horsetail Falls Aerial Tram and the feasibility study needed to start the process. Thank you especially to Roseburg Forest Products and the Siskiyou County Supervisors for their continuing and necessary acts of support. Thank you to the Dunsmuir City Council for wanting to see it built.
I don’t want to pit HFAT against very necessary repairs and support to our local businesses. So the answer to the question I posed earlier this year, Is this the right time for a tram? Is no.
Perhaps people in the future will be able to make something of this opportunity to build a tram to the top of Mt. Bradley.
Mt Bradley Fire
Here are pictures of a small fire which threatened homes in Scarlett Retreat at the base of Bear Creek. This is the same drainage where a fire took off in the 1990s. The proposed start sites for the tram are farther south.
