Latest on the Showdown Between COID and Homeowners Along the Pilot Butte Canal

COID wants to pipe the canal in northeast Bend to conserve water, but the homeowners are fighting those plans -- saying it will ruin their views and property values.


COID Director Craig Horrell says they have brought in a facilitator to mediate.


"Her name is Anne George.  She has been contacting neighbors and meeting with them.  I'm staying out of it.  I'm an interested party.  We initiated the process, but we're not direting the process."


So this mediator will meet with both sides and see if there's some common ground that can be reached on piping the canals.


The timeline to reach some kind of agreement is by March of 2015.
