County Still Considering Parking Issues At Smith Rock State Park

BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners again discussed parking issues at Smith Rock State Park yesterday but took no final action. County Road Department Director Chris Doty said more work needs to be done before the usual increase in crowds in September. He suggested meeting with park officials and other stakeholders to consider options. Commissioners say Smith Rock usually sees a drop in visitors in hot weather months, July and August, with larger crowds in September. The board decided to continue to discuss the issue and explore options. Board Chair Patti Adair would like formal action on parking issues by late July.
