Jefferson County Commissioners will be hearing from the local public Wednesday night on the pros and cons of attracting destination resorts to the area. Jefferson County Administrator Jeff Rasmussen says this marks the second public hearing on the issue: "They're discussing east county, mainly up in the Ashwood area. It’s funding we got from the state after the Metolius Resort issue failed. We asked them if they would provide a grant for us to review other parts of the county that were still eligible.”  He says so far they haven't seen too much opposition, and that Commissioners could move forward soon and give the go ahead and designate land that's eligible to receive an application for a destination resort.  Any proposals that come forward after that would have a severe and strict citing requirement. The public hearing starts at 7 p.m. at the Commission meeting room on "D" Street in Madras.
