HR Council Approves Street And Pedestrian Frameworks For Westside Plan

Hood River City Councilors approved street and pedestrian frameworks for the Westside Area Concept Plan along with municipal planning commission recommendations that would allow staff to begin an update of the city’s transportation systems plan.  City Planning Director Dustin Nilson says the next step is to take the recommendation list and go through a scoping process involving the City Council, Public Works, the Oregon Department of Transportation, and the Department of Land Conservation and Development.  For the Westside Concept Plan itself, the next framework to be addressed will be parks and open space, which Nilsen says is in line with the parks master plan process currently involving the City, County, and Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation District.  The land use aspects of the concept plan will come after that.
