REDMOND, OR -- Downtown Redmond could have a vibrant food truck scene, rivaling that of Bend, by next year. Urban Renewal Project Manager Chuck Arnold says the city is helping develop a food cart lot at the corner of Fourth and Forest, near Highway 97, "The opportunity that we provide, from the city of Redmond, are low interest loans to property owners to address deficiencies in commercial property. And this property has been long vacant and, working on doing improvements in this area will add value to downtown and potential businesses that contribute to the economic vitality." 

 

Construction crews have poured foundations at the property, dubbed "General Duffy's" by the developer, "They’re doing site work right now and preparing the site for the pavilion that’s going in there, which will have this modern rustic feel with high ceilings and structural beams," Arnold tells KBND News, "And, there will be kind of a pub area, and then food trucks and a large lawn area for games and hanging out." he says there will be space for up to five food trucks. 

 

Arnold hopes the site, which sits along the future Homestead Canal Trail, will encourage more people to visit and stay in downtown, "We’re really excited because we really wanted to create activity in that part of downtown and create an opportunity for people to have another option for lunch; and it’ll be great with the new jobs that will be brought. Overall, the project is expected to create 15 new jobs."
