BEND, OR -- The Bend transportation bond will be on the ballot next month. City Manager Eric King says the process to create it stems from 20-year plan to envision Bend’s transportation needs for the year 2040. He explains that from that plan a list of projects emerged. King says the package would be funded by issuing property taxes. However, because of the recession and uncertainty upon us, the council voted to delay any levying of taxes until 2022.
