Today, the Deschutes County Commissioners voted to give Tetherow developers their third and final extension on building a hotel. The area is citing as a destination resort so overnight lodging is required for before more homes can be built. Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney says the three one year extensions are allowed under their contract. She explains where they are currently at in the process: “They have most of the amenities in, but they don't not have the overnight accommodations without the overnight accommodations; they're not allowed to build a certain number of homes, depending on which land use.” The initial deadline to finish overnight lodging was September 2009. Meantime, an attorney for Central Oregon Land Watch, Paul Dewey says his group is opposed to any more extensions at Tetherow.
