The Thornburgh Resort has been in the works since 2005, but neighbor opposition and the economic downturn stalled the project.

 

The developer was pushing again to resume work on a master plan, but the county commissioners had to give the okay.

 

Two did, County Commissioners Alan Unger and Tony DeBone.

 

Commissioner Tammy Baney didn't believe the developer made enough of an effort to seek extensions.

 

Here's the final vote.

 

"Tammy Baney:  Mr Unger? Yes. Commissioner Debone? Yes.  I will just say I think we are setting a low bar in Deschutes County and I'll vote no."

 

Baney felt the developer had opportunities post bankruptcy to seek extensions and he didn't.

 

The commissioners had to decide whether the developer was at fault for the delays.

 

The majority felt the developer was not, so they are allowing the project to move forward.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
