HR County To Update Forest Designations

Hood River County will be updating its county forest designations.  County Administrator Jeff Hecksel says it has been over 30 years since that has been done, noting the County currently has 34,000 acres of land, most of which is forest.  Part of the need to revise the designations is as a result of the County making acquisitions that have consolidated land holdings with the proceeds from sales of lands outside the County that were acquired in an exchange with the Forest Service a number of years ago.
