The Port of Hood River will hold a hearing Tuesday evening on an ordinance outlining waterfront usage. Ordinance 24 actually revises the current Ordinance 22, and looks to build in flexibility to allow changes to time and place of activities on Port property. Language regarding boat maintenance and repairs being prohibited is being removed to reflect allowing owners to do routine light maintenance, and language that did not allow for riding a bicycle over the pedestrian bridge would also be deleted. Clauses that would be added include no launching of boats except at the Marina Boat Basin and Nichols Basin and no launching of a kiteboard or training kite other than locations designated by an official sings. Tuesday’s meeting begins at 5 p.m. at the Port’s Marina Center boardroom.
Both The Dalles and Hood River City Councils will be discussing medical marijuana dispensary moratoriums this evening. Cities and counties were given until May 1 by the Oregon Legislature to adopt a one-year moratorium on the dispensaries legalized by the Legislature in 2013. That means they would have to pass emergency ordinances. A special ordinance is the subject of a hearing in The Dalles, while it is a discussion item in Hood River. The meeting in The Dalles starts at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall, while the Hood River Council meets in its chambers at 6 p.m.
