Bend Park and Recreation Board Member Dallas Brown resigned at Tuesday night's meeting.

 

Brown, who was elected to the post in 2011 says he's been toying with the idea of doing some personal travel in Latin America for a while.  "I’ve wanted to learn Spanish and I’ve always wanted to backpack for four months, and at age 28, now is the time to do it."

 

Brown says he tendered his resignation at Tuesday night's meeting and the board accepted it.

 

He says they will decide how to fill his seat: either by waiting for a special election or by appointment.

 

He adds that he is leaving sometime next week, and plans to be gone for at least four months.
