The Bend Parks and Rec Board have decided to move forward with the bond measure for future improvements and projects, but with a reduced price tag.  At Tuesday night's work session, the Board received a report from the District's Jan Taylor with results of the recent open houses and website survey about the proposed projects; and for the most part there is support.

 

Executive Director Don Horton suggested that the dollar amount of the bond should be reduced to make it more attractive to voters, and the Board agreed to changing a $31-million bond to $29-million.  Board Member Ruth Williamson expressed concern that more of the community will have to show a lot of support for the bond measure, and possibly canvass neighborhoods and events to spread the word.  The Board decided to go ahead and prepare the bond draft for approval at the July meeting
