The Bend Park and Rec Board members have been out in the community to talk about November ballot Measure - 9-86, asking for money to improve or expand some facilities.

 

Member Dallas Brown says most people he's been in contact with have been very supportive - once they know how the $29-million will be used.  "There will be an economic boost to the type of projects having a river trail from Tumalo to Sunriver for instance, opens up a whole range of opportunities for marathons, for trail runs, for bike races, for various things like that. The safe passageway at Colorado Dam where we could develop a whitewater park over there. It would give us a lot of opportunity for events to do with kayaking."

 

Brown says Bend has developed an identity for being outdoor based and having the money to build on that reputation will bring more revenue into Bend.

 

He adds that in the future, the Board will hold more meetings and get- togethers at the various project locations.
