Thornburgh Resort Public Hearing Tonight

The public will have a chance tonight to comment on a proposed 400 acre development near Eagle Crest.

From 6-8 pm the Department of State Lands will hold a virtual public hearing on the possible sale of state land to property developer Kameron Delashmutt for his proposed Thornburgh Resort. Proceeds from a potential sale would benefit the Common School Fund. Caitlyn Burford, Central Oregon Land Watch Communications and Outreach Manger, says the land is a pivotal corridor for public access near the Cline Buttes Recreation area. But Delashmutt said he doesn’t plan any changes on land he’s already leased for 18 years. He accuses Central Oregon Land Watch of having alternative motives and stirring up fear among nearby residents. Burford disputes Delashmutt’s claims and said people living near the property have valid concerns, including the resort's impact on supplies of drinking water. Information on tonight’s virtual meeting can be found on the Department of State Land website: https://www.oregon.gov/dsl
