The City of Bend will soon be able to sell land to prospective buyers in the Juniper Ridge Development. A hearing officer approved a zone change that affects about 256 acres dedicated to light industrial uses. The space can also be used for office space for corporate or regional headquarters. The next step will be to break the land into separate parcels and create a marketing plan. In a published report, Bend Development Manger Jerry Mitchell says "the zone was our last big push in getting land to the market; it's a big milestone for us." once completed, Juniper Ridge could have a similar feel as Northwest Crossing.
