TD Council To Consider URA Governance Change

The Dalles City Council, acting in its capacity as the Columbia Gateway Urban Renewal Agency board, will consider a proposal to change the governance structure for urban renewal at its meeting Monday.  Currently the Council acts as the URA board, with a nine-member advisory committee in place to make recommendations.  The proposal would eliminate the advisory panel, and create a nine-person URA board made up of three Councilors and two members of the general public appointed by the Mayor, and single representatives of Wasco County, Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue, Northern Wasco County Parks and Recreation District, and the Port of The Dalles.  The move would also require a budget committee made up of the nine board members and nine more members of the public.  The proposal will be considered tonight during the Urban Renewal Agency board meeting that will convene immediately after the City Council meeting that starts at 5:30 in The Dalles City Hall.
