RE: Dog waste north riverfront

We’ll handle the City side and ROW. Let me find out who the ODOT contact is.

Hi Karen,

Thank you for the prompt attention to this matter.  It appears that the area in question is owned by ODOT, Corvallis, and an easement?  (Right of Way)??? 


Do you have any suggestions on how I should proceed with ODOT?


What is the "Right of Way" and who oversees that stretch of walkway?


Wow, I had no idea there would be so many hands in the pot.   Oh well, I guess we need to start somewhere.


Thank you,

Lisa Maxwell

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for sending the information and request below.


“I think it would be most beneficial for the City to place dog waste dispensers at various locations along this stretch of highly used river front trail.   In addition, signage indicating that pooh must be pick up should also be erected.   I feel it would encourage owners to pick up their waste.  These measures have been implemented all over Corvallis public areas.”


I’ll talk with the Parks Supervisor about your request and I’ll get back with you. I’ve attached a map that shows which area is managed by the City Parks and Recreation Department and which areas are privately owned or managed by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). We of course, can only address City property. Thanks for taking the time to let us know of this situation.
