To paraphrase Charles Dudley Warner, everybody complains about the housing, but nobody does anything about it.
Well, now’s your chance. The city of Hood River wants your opinion on a brief survey. Deadline for sharing is Nov. 22.
The city is conducting the survey in collaboration with Oregon’s Kitchen Table, a program of the National Policy Consensus Center in the College of Urban and Public Affairs at Portland State University.
Anyone and everyone with an interest in the topic — resident, homeowners, renters, tourists, hopeful future residents — can share their opinions.
You have several options:
- English version.
- Spanish version.
- Hard copy. Pick one up at City Hall, 211 Second St., or at the Hood River Fire Department, 1785 Meyer Parkway. Return it to either location by Nov. 22.
“Survey results should help decision-makers understand the impacts of housing availability and cost on individuals,” says Wendy Willis, Director of Oregon’s Kitchen Table.
“But it also gives individuals an opportunity to put themselves in the position of the decision-maker and to weigh in on difficult tradeoffs.”
