The Bend Parks and Rec Board members are meeting tonight and they will decide whether or not to bring a $29 million bond request to voters in November.  Executive Director Don Horton says Public feedback shows that people want money spent on parks and features near the river.  "So the number one project we have on here is the completion of the Deschutes River Trail.  Trail users could hike or bike all the way from Tumalo State Park all the way to Sunriver; the gaps within that trail system now all reside within the Parks District, so this is our opportunity  to complete that trail, that means building about  3 miles of trail; doing 2 or 3 bridges across the Deschutes river, and acquiring the remaining that we need to be able to do that.  That's about 41% of the bond measure is dedicated to completion of the Deschutes River Trail. “ Another large chunk of the money would go for building a safe passage way at the Colorado Dam.  If the Board passes the $29 million request tonight; this would be the first time that the District has gone to voters with a bond request.
