HR Planning Panel Begins Working Through Waterfront Refinement Plan

The Hood River City Planning Commission started walking through the proposed Waterfront Refinement Plan, and is recommending the City Council accept the overlay boundary as developed at the committee level.  Planning Commissioners also will recommend removing a 1998 condition for commercial use of property on Portway between 2nd and 8th streets to include a visitors center, and rezoning the former Expo Center property to light industrial.  City Planning Director Cindy Walbridge says they still have more parts of the document to go through, and will continue at a December 8 meeting with the intention to send all of their recommendations to the City Council for a December 15 meeting.  One element the Planning Commission has not gotten to yet:  a provision to allow retail commercial uses on the Expo Center property.
