50 Central Oregonians turned out over the weekend to hear some ideas for re-drawing legislative boundaries. Of those, 30 testified at a public hearing at OSU Cascades in Bend. “There were people who spoke from Sunriver, Bend, and Redmond feeling there was synergy there. There are shared school districts, economic development, and they want keep that as a Senate District. Knowing that Senate District will have to spin off about 28,000 people.” Senator Chris Telfer says there will also have to be two House Districts that will be drawn through the city of Bend. The first proposed map could be ready by mid April. The final map must be settled on and signed by the Governor by June 30th.   There are about a half dozen more public hearings that will be conducted as part of the process.
