All citizens interested in the Hood River valley’s course of future development and land use issues are invited to attend the 36th annual meeting and potluck dinner of the Hood River Valley Residents Committee on Sunday.
The meeting will be from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 4699 Leasure Drive, Mt. Hood.
HRVRC was formed in 1977 to stop an attempt to rezone the valley to 1-acre building lots.
Its mission today remains to protect Hood River County’s farm and forest land and the livability of its cities and rural communities through advocacy, research, education and monitoring land use processes and decisions.
A brief meeting to elect board members begins at 4 p.m., followed by updates by State Rep. Ben Unger, District 29 Hillsboro, County Commissioner Les Perkins and Mayor Arthur Babitz.
Unger will talk on the recent legislative session and statewide issues affecting Hood River County. Unger was one of the architects of the successful Measure 49 campaign of 2006 which stopped subdividing of farm land set in motion by the previous Measure 37.
A potluck and social hour will follow. RSVPs are appreciated to Jeff Hunter at 541-490-6006 or Polly Wood at 541-490-5443.
