The Bend City Council recently decided to continue its affordable housing fee for a couple more years. The fee was due to sunset, but Bend City Manager Eric King says the Council took action. “The program sunsetted after five years. If they didn't act it was allowed to sunset, wouldn't be able to reinstate it until 2018. But they decreased the fee instead of one third of 1%, it is now one fifth of 1%.” The affordable housing fee on a $200,000 project would be around #400 dollars. Eric King was the guest on KBND's Your Town" Thursday morning.
