La Pine just officially became a City in 2007 and soon they hope to own their own City Hall. The City has rented a building from Deschutes County for the last couple years. La Pine City Manager Rick Allen says they got a great buy on a four year old building close to where they currently rent: “The new building will allow double the space for our City Council meetings. We can get more folks in. It will be more comfortable. People will be able to hear better. It will be better for power point presentations and it will be available for other groups who want to use it.” The City hopes to close on the building by mid March and move in by late August. It will be financed through a program run by the League of Oregon Cities that issues tax exempt bonds to pay for small state projects.
