Downtown traffic is an issue both county and city planners are working to address. Plans are in progress for traffic lights at this intersection on Oak St.

Every community in Hood River County, from Crystal Springs Water District to the Port of Cascade Locks, has a stake in the May 17 Special Districts Election.

The filing deadline is March 17 at 5 p.m.

Positions are open on the Hood River County School Board, Port of Hood River, Hood River County Parks and Recreation District, the County Transportation District and two other entities serving all or most of Hood River County: Columbia Gorge Community College and Region 9 Education Service District.

Port of Cascade Locks Commission will also be on the ballot, as will Mt. Hood Community College district board, which includes Cascade Locks.

Water, fire, and sanitation districts as well as the school Local Committees will be on the ballot.

Those interested in filing are encouraged to do so early, according to Kim Kean, county elections coordinator. Getting names enrolled in advance saves the county elections staff time and money in preparing the ballot for mailing around May 1, according to Kean. For details, visit the elections office in the county administration building, Sixth and State streets, or call 541-386-1412.
