Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Tell Us How You Really Feel: Troy Field

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2014 at 4:19 PM

Troy Field, the sometimes sports field near the downtown Bend library, is officially on the market. Declared surplus property by its current owners, the Bend-La Pine School District, the large rectangular patch of grass is one of the few undeveloped properties in downtown Bend. 

The public entities who got first dibs on making a bid on the property have all declined, leaving the property priced at $2.62 million to be snatched up by a private developer. 

What do you think the property should become? (Note: The property is zoned Limited Commercial, meaning it can be used for retail, mixed residential/retail, tourism, etc.)

Take our poll to share your perspective and elaborate in the comments.
