City Council Asked To Reduce Downtown Parking In-Lieu Fee For Residential

Hood River City Councilors Monday night will discuss a request from Key Development to lower the City’s in-lieu of fee for residential parking in the Central Business District to allow the developer to move forward with a proposed mixed use development on State Street that would include 71 market rate apartments along with commercial space.  In a letter to the Council, Key Development president Jeff Pickhardt points out that seven years ago the City lowered the in-lieu fees for commercial and industrial development when it was found they were acting as a de facto development moratorium, and wants the same for residential projects in that area, noting there has not been any large market multi-family apartments constructed in Hood River in the past three decades.  Key Development’s proposal is in a pre-application review phase, and a formal land use application has not been received. This evening’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. in Hood River City Hall.
