The Bend City Council just approved changing the zoning at Reed Market and 15th from residential to mixed employment.

 

This will allow David Ditz to put in apartments and stores along the two acre parcel.

 

Bend Mayor Jim Clinton applauds the move.

 

"I  think it's great you're willing to do something in that part of town and maybe stretching beyond a strip mall with some uncertainty.  But I've seen the combination of residential and retail work in other cities and I'm glad you're willing to try it here."

 

Ditz is still working on obtaining financing for the project, but believes the zoning change will help him secure it.
