The management board has narrowed the options down to four.  They are -- do nothing, do similar dredging as in 1984, do less dredging or remove the dam.

 

Project Manager Jim Figurski says they plan to come up with a preferred alternative by the end of the summer.

 

"From the four alternatives, we will craft a preferred alternative that might contain bits and pieces  of different options.  We will take that out to the public for final review and we plan to wrup up  the visioning process by the end of August."

 

The different options and what they would look like with or without the dam, should be on the Mirror Pond Project website by June 12th.

 

Public open houses will be held at Bend Parks and Rec, June 19th and 25th to get public input.
