BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Commissioners donated 40 acres of land to Redmond last year for a housing project and now the county and city have almost finished formalizing the agreement. The land donation is part of a state approved pilot program to expand the Urban Growth Boundary for affordable housing. County Property Manager James Lewis says Redmond’s design plan includes single and multi-family housing with open space and commercial development. He says it also sets 50-per cent of the housing to be retained as affordable housing. Redmond still must get all land use approvals, hire a master developer and formalize documents to begin construction of infrastructure. Lewis says ground likely won’t be broken until Spring of 2023.
