Mosier meeting to discuss land use

April 30, 2011

Mosier-ites unite! That might be interpreted as an official call from Mosier City Councilwoman Kathy Fitzpatrick with regards to possible upcoming changes for the small town.

On May 5 from 5:30-8:30 p.m., residents of the picturesque town will be meeting to discuss possible uses of the Union Pacific Railroad parcel within the city limits of Mosier that is about to be acquired.

Residents will gather to evaluate uses for the land, located on the north side of Highway 30, between the town and the Columbia River and adjacent to Mosier Creek.

Possibilities under consideration include a bike and pedestrian bridge across Mosier Creek; bringing more jobs to town through land development; a sustainable greenhouse business; a scientific vocational program and anything else residents wish to discuss.

Through this first meeting, the community will begin to develop a key document that is required for the public land acquisition process.

The workshop is for anyone who calls Mosier home - not just those within the city limits. The meeting will be held at the Mosier Senior Center at 500 E. Second St.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
