HR Council Votes To Rezone Morrison Park Property

By a five-to-two vote, Hood River City Councilors voted in favor of changing the zoning of Morrison Park from open space/public facilities to high density residential, opening up the possibility the land could be developed for housing.  Councilors made the decision after months of work at the planning commission level and receiving voluminous amounts of testimony both for and against the zone change for the five-and-a-third acre property on Wasco and 20th Streets.  In the end, the majority of Councilors felt the land’s potential for development of workforce housing, and the need for it in the City, trumped the desire to preserve the land as open space.  Councilors Susan Johnson and Peter Cornelison voted against the zone change.
