Rezoning Morrison Park: on a path of separation by income

Is the City of Hood River aware of where it’s heading with its affordable housing policies? Consider the city’s application for rezoning Morrison Park to R-3. It may not be obvious at first, but approval of this proposal will be a major step toward separating the people in Hood River by income.
