  • Bend-La Pine Schools wants the City to remove Troy Field's public facilities designation and allow the property to simply be zoned Commercial Limited (CL).

In order to move forward with its sale of Troy Field to a developer, Bend-La Pine Schools will first have to apply for a zoning change. The 0.8-acre property currently has a Public Facilities
designation. The district is hoping to have that changed to Commercial Limited.

The next step in that process is a public meeting, to be held at 5:30 pm, August 26 in the BLPS administrative building (room 314). The district recently accepted a $1.9 million offer from Portland-based Brownstone Development, who is representing an unnamed out-of-state hotel developer with plans to turn the lot into a high-end condo hotel.

Brad Henry, Executive Director of Fiscal Services for BLPS, will represent the school district at the meeting. 

Do you think the public facilities designation should be lifted?
