Posted: Updated:

On September 17th, KNDU held our first ever "We're Listening" event at Mid Columbia Library. We had a strong turnout and would like to thank everyone who attended to voice their opinions. Many important issues and community concerns were brought up at the meeting including:

  • Healthcare (mental health, human services, and the cost of healthcare)
  • Education
  • Columbia Park Development
  • Water Rights
  • Drug and Alcohol Abuse
  • Poverty (homeless issues, and cost of living)

Also discussed was addressing the Juniper Dunes problem, and the difficulty of those over the age of 50 finding a good job. Social security was mentioned along with taxes, immigration, KGH, city government, community pride  and  growth management.
