The Bend City Council is sharply divided over the decision to give the Bend Indoor Market one more month to operate. City officials objected to the market operating in the Scott Street industrial area, because that area is zoned industrial and the market is considered commercial. Several of the 80-plus vendors appeared before Councilors last night, pleading that they not be put out of business. Mayor Jeff Eager voted in the minority in favor of allowing the businesses to continue: “It’s more about flexibility in the economy. These aren’t normal times. And these folks are using these properties for uses that are commercial in nature. They’re selling stuff rather than making stuff, although sometime they are making stuff. And so rater than have these properties sit vacant, I would make sense for the City to make the code change and help these folks out a little bit.” Several Councilors indicated having a commercial building in an industrial site could cause safety and traffic issues, and the City, with budget issues already should not have to pay for a change in zoning rules.
