BEND, OR -- After battling the approval of conditional use permits for two proposed solar farms adjacent to her east Bend home, Cathy Jensen has withdrawn her formal opposition to the projects.

 

Cypress Creek Renewables and Oregon Solar Land Holdings plan solar farms on 70-acres of adjacent land on Highway 20. Jensen spent $6,000 to file an appeal Deschutes County. Commissioners voted to hear the appeal at a public hearing originally scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday. 
 
Citing financial pressure and the personal stress of fighting what she calls the impacts of industrial facilities on their neighborhood, Jensen plans to withdraw her appeal this morning.
 
A third solar farm called “Bear Creek Solar Center” plans a project in the same area but has not yet filed for county permits.
