Thursday night from 5 to 7pm at Bend City Hall you will have a chance to tell City Councilors what they should do about fixing the City's streets. The question is if you're willing to vote for the continuation of a 27-cents per $1000 levy to pay for targeted street projects. There are three options on the table: “There is an a, b, and c option. We are looking at about a $30-million bond measure. Those options, some have very similar parts, I think there are two major differences. One would take care of the Reed Market Corridor, reconstructing Reed Market Road. The other would take care of a corridor at 18th and Empire. There are other options that would include the west side, southeast side, southwest side.” Justin Finestone with the City of Bend says the City Council will decide next Wednesday if they will put the request before voters. The levy is currently funding the Downtown Urban Renewal District, and the proposal is to shift those moneys to street improvements. Proponents say taxpayers are already paying the tax, so it would not be an increase in taxes. Opponents say letting the levy sunset would give property owners a break.
