2020 Vision

A time for citizen input

November 2, 2005

That bright green survey that came in the mail last month might still be waiting for your attention.

Or perhaps you have already sent in your Hood River 2020 “Keeping Hood River On Track” questionnaire to City Hall.

It can be dropped off at City Hall or at the Hood River County Library. The deadline is Nov. 15, so there is still time to submit your answers to the important questions found within. They include:

What do you like about Hood River?

What would you change about Hood River?

The biggest issue(s) facing Hood River over the next several years are …?

Citizen input will be used to formulate a City Vision Statement to guide the city in managing growth. It sounds dry, but only if the community doesn’t give it a chance.

Between now and Nov. 15, take this opportunity to use your voice.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Nov. 2, city officials will be accepting citizen input at a town meeting at 6 p.m. at Hood River Senior Center, 2010 Sterling Place. (Or, if you picked up this newspaper on Tuesday, note that there is a meeting at 6 p.m. in the Library’s Jeanne Gaulke Meeting Room.)

Many good things are going on in this community. Many challenges confront us. The Hood River 2020 project is a way to have a voice. Speak up.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
