Hood River URA Board Approves Consultant Contract For Westside Plan

The Hood River Urban Renewal Agency board approved a contract with consultant Elaine Howard to study the feasibility of and develop a plan for a Westside Urban Renewal district.  City officials have looked to such a district as a way to prepare the Westside area for residential development as Hood River deals with its housing supply issues.  Board members, which include the Hood River City Council and two Port of Hood River commissioners, asked Howard about her community engagement plans.  She said the first thing she does is to talk organizations in the community to find out how they are engaging it.  Cost of the work will be about $130,000.  City Manager Abigail Elder says the goal is to finish the project by August of next year.
