The Bend Parks and Rec Board is meeting tonight and board members could decide on whether they will put a $31 million bond request up for a vote in November.  Board member Dallas Brown says they've been gathering public feedback for the past few weeks:  “We're getting all sorts of feedback.  Most of the feedback has been positive.  It’s really important for us to hear from the community.  The bond sounds like its something the community as a whole supports.  Of course people have different projects they support; community as a whole supports.”  If passed, the bond measure would increase property taxes by about $5 a month for the owner of a $200,000 home.  Two major projects take up a lot of the money.  The first, completing the Deschutes River Trail all the way from Tumalo State Park to Sunriver."   The second project would create a safe passage around the Colorado Avenue spillway for people floating the Deschutes River through Bend.
