In preparation for the City of Hood River’s annual work plan session February, City Council seeks community input and ideas on priority projects to help achieve City Council’s goals for the community. Community members are invited to contribute ideas via a print questionnaire or online survey.
The survey will be available until January 16th, and online and print forms are available in Spanish and English. Community members can share ideas for adding or changing current goals or projects, as well as offering ideas on projects to move Council goals forward. PDF questionnaires are available to print from the webpage. They can also can be picked up at City Hall (211 2nd Street, Hood River) or at various locations around town. Individuals can request surveys to be mailed to them by calling City Recorder Jennifer Gray at: (541) 387-5212, or emailing to J.Gray@cityofhoodriver.gov.
Input on Council 2022 goals will become part of the public record. Although names and addresses are required when submitting, individual identity will be separated from comments received. Submitted ideas and input will be compiled and distributed to Council ahead of a February work session. To maximize Council’s time during its strategic planning session, it will not be possible to offer further input at the work session.
Outlined progress on the City’s 2021 work plan will be shared on all current goals. Some current goals and projects are expected to continue into the new year.
