Both the Bend Parks and Rec Board and the Bend City Council seem to be agreement about moving toward a more natural flowing river downtown.

 

The two groups agreed to Mirror Pond "concepts" but still need to work out details how the pond would look -- and how we'd pay for its maintenance.

 

Bend City Councilor Victor Chudowsky voted for the plan.  He knows three councilors voted against it and one is involved with Foster Fell, who is circulating a petition to bring the issue to voters.

 

"Because he tried this last year and it didn't go anywhere and this one won't go anywhere either.  And even if it did go to the ballot, I don't think it would pass. It's not something that worries me whatsoever."

 

Foster Fell says he didn't get enough signatures last November, but he's still at it.

 

"Years ago I got one thosuand signatures.  I need four thousand more.  I see the interest and support picking up every time I set up a table at the library, there's a line of people to sign the petition.  I think it will pick up quite a bit."

 

Fell wants to prohibit the city and Parks and Rec District from suing Mirror Pond funds unless their plan has fish passage that would allow fish to pass in and out of the pond.  It would also prevent periodic dredging.
