Which roads do you want to see fixed in Bend, and are you willing to pay for it? That’s what City Councilors want to find out tonight.  During an Open House tonight from 5 to 7 at City Hall. The question is whether or not to continue a 27-cents per $1000 levy and re-direct the money to roads. Right now that levy funds a downtown Bend Redevelopment District, but that will sunset this year; “They are supposed to make a final decision based on the election timelines next week. So prior to their decision, we needed to get public input as to which projects the public would support or like to see done.” Justin Finestone of the City of Bend says three options will be presented during tonight's Open House.   One of those options is to fix the Reed Market Corridor; another is to focus on northeast Bend, namely the Empire Avenue industrial area. City Councilors say they want to list specific road projects so voters will know exactly where the money will go.
