The plan my colleagues and I spent the first six months of 2012 developing was adopted by the Cascade Locks Port Commission this week. The purpose of Connect Cascade Locks is to increase the economic development prospects of Cascade Locks through a regionally integrated trails network. I am excited to hear Cascade Locks is taking the plan’s recommendations forward. A great place to visit is also a great place to live.
The Hood River News did a feature article on the progress:
For Cascade Locks, the newly articulated goal to become an easy-access hub for each of these sports within the Gorge is creating citizen excitement and outside investment opportunities.
A rich and well-articulated plan is now in the hands of Cascade Locks port and city staff, which provides step-by-step guidance on how to achieve that goal. Now, all that is needed is a small crew of local residents and outside helpers to bring that dream to fruition.
