BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners will again wade into the controversy over Central Oregon Irrigation District's attempt to pipe part of the Pilot Butte canal.  Some homeowners along the canal are fighitng those plans are are tyring to get a stretch of that canal designated as historic.  That would likely prevent COID from piping the canal.

 

The Deschutes County Community Development Department denied that request, but want county commissioners to review it.  CDD Director Nick Lelack said, "Staff find the applicant's request for Goal 5 historic designation cannot happen until the text amendment is decided, which will probably happen next spring.  And this is the first time since I've been in the department, that we've denied a land use request to anyone, but there are legitimate arguments of what the timng of this means."

 

County commissioners agreed to hear the request, which they expect will be appealed to the State Land Use Board of Appeals.  A public hearing is expected in January.
