Wasco County Commissioners Join Call To Stop Scenic Area UGB Revisions

Wasco County Commissioners joined with The Dalles City Council and the Port of The Dalles in approving a resolution opposing revisions to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Management Plan they believe would unfairly restrict growth for cities in the Scenic Area by severely limiting the size of urban growth boundary expansion requests.  The current proposal would limit UGB increases to one percent or 20 acres.  County Commission Chair Scott Hege said the limitations being considered would stifle economic development in the Gorge.  The Gorge Commission is holding a public comment meeting via ZOOM on Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
