Deschutes County Commissioners failed to waive thousands in application fees for John Shepherd, but he is still moving forward.

 

Shepherd, who owns 215 acres northeast of Sisters, says it's been a three year process.

 

"So I'm persistent.  I don't really want to spend $8200 on fees with an unsure outcome.  But I think it's my best option forward. I got the sense the commissioners  wanted this to work.  It will generate one million dollars for Deschtues County which is really important."

 

Shepehrd is seeking input from county planners and groups like "Oregonians for Action" about his next step.  He's considering applying for a commercial permit or a park permit to hold weddings.
