Hosted by HRVRC & Livable Hood River
Suggested Donation at the Door




Continuing their series of public forums on the Westside Area Concept Plan. . .HRVRC thinks you won’t want to miss this one! Mike Houck, director of Urban Greenspaces Institute, will be coming to talk to us about creating cities where the built and natural environments are interwoven, not set apart. He’ll come with examples from his work with the Intertwine in the Portland-Vancouver region as well as advice for how our little town can integrate urban green infrastructure—parks, trails, streams and wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat, urban forests, and greenspaces—with the built environment.  Find out why Mike’s motto is “In Livable Cities is Preservation of the Wild.”

The Residents Committee is excited about the Westside Area Concept Plan as an opportunity to bring this vision to Hood River. Livable Hood River will again be the co-host for the evening. There will be activities for kids so that parents can attend the talk plus appetizers from Lake Taco, and beer & wine for sale to make it a real evening out.

Doors open at 6pm, event at 6:30pm. This event is generously underwritten by Middle Mtn. Tax Services as part of the CCA Partnership Program.
