Wireless Tower Remand Hearing Continued To September 26

Hood River County Commissioners continued a hearing on a remand from the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals of a decision earlier this year to allow a 100-foot tall wireless transmission tower near Windmaster Corner.  The attorney for project applicant ProLand asked for a seven-day extension during the rebuttal stage, saying legal counsel for appellant Rebecca Rawson had provided information on Friday afternoon that he had not had sufficient time to review.  County Commission Chair Ron Rivers says the hearing will continue next Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the County Administration Building.  LUBA remanded the approval decision back to the County based on questions about whether the tower qualified as a utility use under County ordinances, and finding the County had not formally adopted Planning Director findings on public interest, property value, and public need standards.
