In preparation for the City of Hood River’s annual strategic planning work session, City Council seeks community input and ideas on priority projects to help achieve the City Council’s stated goals for the community. Community members are invited to contribute ideas via a print questionnaire or online form by Dec. 20.

Beginning next week and until Dec. 20, community members can contribute ideas for projects or strategies via a print questionnaire or online at

The online and print forms will be available in Spanish and English. Information will be compiled and distributed to Council in late December ahead of the January work session. To maximize Council’s time during the strategic planning event, information cannot be accepted at the work session.

Input on Council 2020 goals will become part of the public record; therefore, names and addresses are required when submitting. Outlined progress on the City’s 2019 work plan will be shared on all current goals, and some projects and strategies are scheduled to continue into the new year.
