The ballot measure is simple: it proposes a public vote before the city disposes of a park.
It simply lets YOUR VOICE be heard.
Here is what you will see in the ballot:
Amendment to the city charter regarding disposal of city parks
Shall Hood River revise its charter to prohibit the disposal of any city park land without a public vote?
Amends the Hood River City Charter to require a public vote before the council can dispose of any designated, dedicated, or recognized city park, including the sale, lease or transfer of any property rights, unless it is for the promotion or enhancement of recreational enjoyment of the general public. If adopted, this charter amendment will take effect immediately by emergency clause as it is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health and welfare.
