The Bend Planning Commission took steps Monday to prevent future high traffic government agencies from moving into neighborhood shopping centers. The change won't affect the DMV's plans to move into the Brookswood Plaza in southwest Bend, but Bend’s Director of Community Development, Mel Oberst says it will prevent such future action.  “It would prevent City Hall from locating a Community Commercial Zone. It would prevent Parks and Rec District from there. Any public agency that was wanting to located their main headquarters or offices would not be allowed in the Community Commercial Zone.” The Planning Commission voted 3 to 2 to approve the restriction to the zoning. The City Council will decide whether to accept that recommendation in December.
