City Of Bend Drops Plan For Transition Shelter At Juniper Ridge

BEND, OR -- After hearing complaints from neighbors, the Bend City Council decided not to move forward with a temporary transitional shelter site at Juniper Ridge. City Manager Eric King says the council will change course and look at a more comprehensive approach to the homeless issue. He says the city wants to come together with the community to figure out how the city can identify more housing options for the homeless. King says the city is also looking at buying a motel to use as a homeless shelter, and has applied for state funds from the Oregon Community Foundation to do that.
