The Bend City Council is not going to act to save Bend’s Indoor Market on southwest Scott Street. That is leaving the market's owner and the vendors furious, and they vow to keep fighting. At issue is allowing a retail use in a light industrial zone. Bend City Manager Eric King says the issue before Council is whether they should act to relax the code to allow the market: “Council deciding taking this action could jeopardize their UGB negotiations with the State, and they don't have time to re-write this code. They said the property owners should apply for a variance; otherwise they will not act and leave this up to code enforcement.” Stephen White of the Indoor Market was angry: “Oran Teater has brought up to council, there are plenty of these violations all over the industrials zones. So if they need formal complaint, they’re going to get them [KBND’s Dave Adams: “Are you going to files the complaints?] White: Oh I will, I’m not going to let the City pick on me, if you will and all of these other people who are trying to survive in business here.” White says after Wednesday night's Council meeting, he will not have an indoor market this weekend, but that this issue is far from over.
