Westside Urban Renewal District Gets Formal Approval

The Hood River City Council voted to formally authorize creation of the Westside Urban Renewal District.  The district has been long discussed, and the approval allows tax increment financing to begin to be accrued when taxes are collected this November.  Mayor Paul Blackburn says that will allow the district to begin to implement projects as opportunities become available.  City Manager Abigail Elder says they will be working with their urban renewal consultant, Elaine Howard, on a five-year implementation plan.
