BEND, OR -- County Commissioners will discuss next month the proposed creation of a new city in Deschutes County. A group has petitioned to incorporate about 265 square miles around the Millican area, southeast of Bend, with an estimated population of 160. They would name the town “Mountain View.”
According to the county clerk’s office, 29 people living in the area signed a petition to incorporate, which is the required 20% needed for certification.
Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the petition at 9 a.m. on September 20th.
