Another green light is given for the Juniper Ridge Project. Without discussion, Wednesday night, Bend City Councilors authorized a little more than $9800 of extra work for current Juniper Ridge Project Manager David Dietz. When his contract is completed in May, Dietz will have been paid more than $100,000. Dietz will help develop a strategy to find a master developer and will help form an owners association. After May, the City is looking at handing off work on the Juniper Ridge Project to a new position at the City. Pending budget approval, the Bend business advocate will be a liaison with the Chamber of Commerce and other city economic development efforts. Depending on experience, this new two-year position could pay up to $94,000 annually. A vocal opponent of Juniper Ridge told the Council Wednesday he believes Juniper Ridge is a waste of money and is nothing but unfulfilled promises. However, City Officials and staffers say they are pleased with Dietz’s work.
