Local News


Although Redmond had no bond measure on the ballot this time around, Redmond Mayor George Endicott finds the outcome of the election, specifically the passing of the "Better Roads for Bend" and the jail levy, uplifting. "I think it goes to show that the voters will, even in times like this, support initiatives that support the community.  I think there are some other examples like the school bond and some others and I think it proves that voters are paying attention and will show support." Endicott was a guest on KBND's “Your Town” today.

 

And Business Leaders are Happy Too

 

Local economic development leaders supported the $30 million bond measure in Bend to improve the City roads. A number of local groups, like the school district, COCC, and economic development leaders endorsed the bond measure. Roger Lee with EDCO says the quality of local roads does matter. He says bad roads cans top a potential business expansion or start-ups. "It creates issues on getting approval say from ODOT or even the City if there's not adequate capacity in the streets." And good roads can be attractive to businesses wanting to locate in Bend because it may lower their start-up costs.
