Work Coming On Westside Area Concept Plan
The City of Hood River, Hood River County, and the Oregon Department of Transportation are about to enter into an intergovernmental agreement to prepare a Westside Area Concept Plan. That plan would focus on land use and public infrastructure issues to facilitate development of workforce and affordable housing. City Manager Steve Wheeler says the Westside area is a key component to the housing strategy. The City will provide matching funds of just over $23,000 to augment an ODOT grant for the study. A Statement of Work for the study is being reviewed by the Oregon Department of Justice for state approval.
