Gorge Commission Hearing On UP Appeal Tuesday

The Columbia River Gorge Commission will hold its hearing on the Union Pacific’s appeal of the Wasco County Commission decision to deny an application to construct a second track through the Mosier area.  The County denied a permit for the project based on its National Scenic Area ordinance which calls for denial when area tribes do not concur with an application.  Union Pacific promptly appealed to the Gorge Commission, contending they have the right to proceed under federal interstate commerce laws.  Tuesday morning’s hearing begins at 9:10 in the Fort Dalles Readiness Center.  There will be no public testimony taken, but the public may attend the oral argument and deliberation.
