County Commissioners Hear About Parking Problems, Large Crowds At Smith Rock

BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners continue to struggle with issues related to the very popular Smith Rock State Park. The park attracts close to 1-million visitors every year…and neighbors complain of their streets being crowded with parked cars on Wilcox,17th and others. Al Dirtenger with the Terrebonne Neighborhood Alliance says Wilcox is always crowded with cars and people making it dangerous. He urged commissioners to consider a reservation or limited entry permit system. Commissioners discussed various options including using shuttles or other parking options but took no final action. They will revisit the issue Monday.
