A Resolution Amending Resolution No. 2017-03 and Revising the “In Lieu Parking Fee” for uses in the Central Business District, Waterfront Business District and the Heights Business District collected pursuant to HRMC Chapter 17.24.

 The City Council for the City of Hood River adopts the following findings:

 WHEREAS, the various base zones set forth in Title 17 (Zoning) in the Hood River Municipal Code (HRMC) require certain minimum number of vehicle parking spaces for various uses and developments constructed in the base zones; and

 WHEREAS, HRMC Chapter 17.24 (In-Lieu Parking Fee) authorizes developers to pay a set fee per parking space in lieu of constructing all or some of the parking spaces required by the base zone to serve new development; and

 WHEREAS, the City Council adopted an initial schedule of in-lieu fees for parking under different development situations in Resolution 2007-05, which it subsequently amended, most recently in Resolution No. 2017-03, adopted on January 23, 2017 (FY 17-18 Consolidated Fee Schedule), in which the Council set the in-lieu parking fee for residential development in the three primary commercial districts in the city (Central Business District, Waterfront Business District and the Heights Business District); and

 WHEREAS, the City Council desires to facilitate residential development in its primary commercial districts; and

 WHEREAS, to achieve these policy objectives, the City Council considered a reduction in the in-lieu parking fee for new residential development in the City’s commercial districts at its regular meetings on August 28, September 11 and September 25, 2017, at which time the Council accepted public testimony on the proposal.

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Hood River City Council that:
