Oregon’s newest city - La Pine is really getting its footing, and will hold a Town Hall this Wednesday - to discuss their transportation system plan.
City Manager Steve Hasson says things are getting very exciting for the city, and the future is very bright.
"Right now, right out in front of City Hall, we have and average of 14,000 transportation trips a day. A lot of those are trips of people made on 97, who have never made before and they come by and say 'Oh, what's this?, Where am I?' and then they see it's La Pine, oh ok, cool. You know a lot of businesses are relying on traffic viewing. This as it grows, as Hwy 97 grows, is going to be well poised to capture a lot of market."'
Hasson says they are formulating a vision of the future of La Pine and they want to share what's going on with residents and hear what they want.
The town hall is Wednesday in the La Pine Community Center at 6:30 p.m.
