There’s a bond measure in the upcoming special election that would pay for road reconstruction in Bend City limits. Neil Bryant, Co-chair of Better Roads for Bend Political Action Committee says he thinks most Bend residents will at least agree that the work needs to be done, even if they aren't ready to pay for it. "As you look at the six projects, I think one or two of them will strike home with every voter ‘cuz they'll say wait a minute; I know the problem there and it needs to be fixed. Reed Market clearly is a priority from 27th to Third Street, it just doesn't work any more." There are six projects total included in the Measure's initial proposal, including a better intersection construction for the crossing of Powers and Brookswood.  The Measure would continue a 27 cents per $1000 property tax. Bryant says it comes at a time when an old bond measure comes to an end. Measure 9-83 will be on the May 17th ballot.
