BEND,OR -- Bend residents had a chance to speak out on what they want the city to do with Troy Field in downtown Bend.

 

A hearings officer Wednesday heard from people whether the site is fit for commerical development.  It's currenlty a fenced in park.

 

The Bend LaPine school district owns the land and the school board accepted a nearly two million dollar offer from a Portland developer to build a boutique hotel.

 

Local architect Katherine Austin thinks there's a way to preserve some green space and sell the land.

 

"So my thought was the city could make it commerical, but have an overlay of public use and require the hotel to have a public access and create a green roof and have a glass tsairway or elevator and have public access and have a play area and maybe a little track."

 

The school district wants to sell the land to build new schools. 

 

The hearings officer will make a recommendaiton and the city council is expected to take up the matter early next year.
