Hood River voters passed two land-use measures that were posted on Tuesday's ballot.
Measure 14-15 was approved by a 61.4 percent margin, with 3,187 votes in favor and 1,998 opposed. The initiative sponsored by the Let the People Decide political action committee seeks to give voters a voice in either the approval or denial of any application for development of 25 or more units in a forest zone.
Measure 14-16 passed by 67.4 percent, with 1,081 "yes" votes cast and 522 against. The Citizens for Responsible Waterfront Development sponsored the initiative that seeks to establish a city policy that preserves a large sector of the waterfront for a public park.
Lee Shissler, county elections supervisor, said more than 49 percent of the county's 10,375 registered voters returned their mail ballots. Only 2,970 city residents were allowed to mark their choice on the waterfront issue and Shissler said 53.9 percent participated in the election.
