The Bend Parks and Recreation District and the Oregon Department of Transportation are now in agreement on an application for a $79,000 grant to fund the design of an expansion of a Deschutes River Trail. Bend Park's Planning Director Bruce Ronning says the application needed to include ADA requirements and the new application does meet that. He adds that even with a revised application, the cost of the entire project is not yet determined: “The bridge and trail project will cost what it will cost. It won't cost anymore. What we've lost is the opportunity to apply for recreation trails program grant in a timely way. That grant application is due on January 14th. We were hoping that we could get the preliminary design work done sufficiently, that we could apply for that grant." Ronning says there was no assurance that they were going to get part of a $1.2 million from the Oregon State Parks Grant Program. There are other grant programs that they will pursue and now they can begin doing research on those.
