Commissioners Deliberate on Plan for Westside Transect Zone

Commissioners tentatively approved plans for the Westside Transect Zone, but deliberations will continue before the plan is finalized.

The Deschutes County Commissioners met earlier this week to hear the final plan for the proposed low density housing area on Bend’s west side. However, concerns over how the plan would account for local wildlife and allow continued public access to Shevlin Park and the forrest lands made commissioners stop short of a final approval.

County staff is expected to put forth a final draft of the plan, with the changes requested by the commissioners, later this week.
