BEND, OR -- The State Land Board has approved the sale of 382 acres of land at Stevens Road and 27th Avenue. Money from the property sale will go to the Common School Fund. Ali Ryan Hansen at State Lands says the property was brought into the Bend’s Urban Growth Boundary three years ago. Hansen says, "This land is within the Bend Urban Growth Boundary and can be developed. The Bend Comprehensive Plan calls for a mix of housing types and this will allow for development of housing Bend so desperately needs." Hansen says marketing of the land at Stevens Road will begin in January. The state expects it to sell within 3 to 6 months.
