We will be holding an informal public meeting at 7pm on Thursday the 25th at the Hood River Hotel. I will be presenting the project and revealing our preliminary layout for the cable park.
I'd appreciate having nwkite attend to show its support!
*** UPDATE ***
Hello all! I’m sure some of you may have heard rumors of an upcoming cable park in the Nichols Basin. Well, the rumors are true and after months of planning I’m excited to finally announce it!
In the coming months we’ll be holding several public meetings in Hood River to gather input on the cable park and our project from the community. I hope to meet some nwkiters there. In the meantime, feel free to ask me about anything related to the Nichols Basin and the cable park.
Undoubtedly, access to the spit will be impacted briefly during construction. However I think everyone will really enjoy the improved, pedestrian-friendly streetscape and other improvements we’re making.
In short, we’re building:
- An 85+ room Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel
- A gastro-pub with a large deck overlooking the water
- A watersports retailer / pro-shop
- Office space
- The cable park
Construction will start next spring and take about 12 months to complete the project.
We’re committed to being as transparent as possible and listening to the community and other waterfront users.
