HR Council Hears Housing Strategy Presentation

The Hood River City Council heard a presentation on an Affordable Housing Strategy it is expected to approve in May.  It was developed by a community task force and includes eight different strategies to pursue including infrastructure subsidies, land banking, a non-profit tax exemption, direct project subsidies, housing rehabilitation and preservation, an affordable housing ordinance, establishing the Westside Urban Renewal District, and pursuing a general obligation bond for housing projects.  City Senior Planner Jennifer Kaden said the more resources available, the more the City can do.  The Council is expected to adopt the strategy by resolution on May 9.
