Update (4/16/12):

VERY IMPORTANT!

City of Hood River Planning Commission Meeting #2

TONIGHT: April 16th

City Hall: 211 State Street

Although the planning commission will only be reviewing and discussing land-use issues related to the cable park, we expect this meeting to be quite interesting.

Please attend if you can!

Also, below are several links to articles that appeared in the Hood River News about the cable park:

Editorial: Yea to Naito cable park

Original Post:

Hello all! Im 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 Im excited to finally announce it!

In the coming months well 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 were making.

In short, were building:

- An 88 room Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel
- A restaurant & bar 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.

Were committed to being as transparent as possible and listening to the community and other waterfront users.

Thanks, Will

Keeping this secret has been killing me! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO STOKED! For those who've never ridden the cable, This is the closest thing to creating your own wind!

YES!! This will really make Hood River the ultimate playground. Just imagine how good the next generation of wakestyle kiters will be. The future of Ro Sham throw down is looking good. Can't wait!

This is great news! Hood River can definitely benefit from such a facility.

I just got back from a trip to Colorado and visited Copper Mountain's Woodward Camp. I was thinking that we need something like that here too. Have you considered a facility like that in your planning research?

The possibilities would be endless.
