DEPARTMENT Overview

The Planning Department oversees all unincorporated portions of Hood River County outside the City Limits of Hood River and Cascade Locks. Department functions are organized into three categories: 1) public service; 2) development review; and 3) project planning (legislative amendments and special projects). Collectively, the department provides technical assistance and information to the public and local officials, administers the county land use regulations, supports a variety of planning-associated programs, and generates citizen interest, input and participation in the planning process. One of the department’s primary roles is the administration of the Hood River County Zoning Ordinance (HRCZO), where focus is placed on full compliance with state and local laws.
