Deschutes County is amending its Comprehensive Plan to formally recognize an area specific plan titled, Newberry Country: A Plan for Southern Deschutes County. The Plan encompasses the rural areas south of Lava Butte with two exceptions: Sunriver and La Pine are governed separately. It addresses the area’s unique assets, local values and preferences for growth and development, the environment, natural hazards, transportation and more.
Two evening public hearings are scheduled with the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners. The public is invited and encouraged to testify on:
Tuesday, February 26, at 6:00 p.m. at the La Pine Senior Center, 16560 Victory Way, in La Pine.
Tuesday, March 12, at 6:00 p.m. at the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreation Center, Dillon Hall, 57250 Overlook Road, in Sunriver.
