Deschutes County Officials are beginning the process of developing a land use plan for South County, and the first step is getting residents involved. Deschutes County Senior Planner Terri Hansen Payne says they are encouraging a lot of input. "Well, South County has some unique issues, because there are so many small lots that were platted before platted before land use came to the state. And there are a lot of them are along rivers are wildlife corridors and people love it down there. We want to make sure we protect what people love." There is an open house tonight at La Pine High School at 5:30 p.m. where county officials are all ears for your suggestions and comments. Hansen Payne says they are going to have several meetings over the next few months to gather the information.
