The United Senior Citizens of Bend (USCB) are seeking nearly $1-million from Bend Parks and Recreation District claiming the district reneged on a partnership created nearly a decade ago.

 

The Bend Bulletin reports the USCB claims the two groups had a legally binding partnership to manage the Senior Center that is now struggling.

 

The senior group is also seeking a court order barring the district from calling the Reed Market Road building the  "Bend Senior Center" because it confuses the public with the services they provide at Bend's Community Center.

 

In 1997,USCB teamed up with Bend Parks and Rec, raising more than $1.9 million to build the building, which opened in 2001.

 

The USCB says it's become increasingly clear that the district only wants to offer opportunities to more affluent seniors.

 

The USCB moved to Bend's Community Center in 2011 to provide more services for low income seniors and began it's crusade to sue the district.
