More money and more volunteers are needed before the Feather River walkway project sees completion, according to Portola city officials.

“It’s way bigger than it started out to be,” said Council Member Phil Oels. “We’re also hung up waiting for grant money.”

With an original deadline set for this spring, initial plans call for an Americans With Disabilities Act-compliant river walk lined with aspen trees, wooden benches, parking and informational plaques regarding points of interest, local businesses and activities.
