Improve transportation safety
Expand access to regional parks and trails, i.e., the Banks-Vernonia Linear Trail, the Chehalem Heritage Trail System and the Wapato Lake Wildlife Refuge
Provide recreational opportunities including biking, hiking and equestrian
Promote tourism and economic development in the region
