The Deschutes County Commission holds the second of three public hearings on the draft Deschutes County Comprehensive Plan, which will guide development in unincorporated Deschutes County for the next 20 years. 

Tonight's hearing begins at 6pm, at the La Pine Senior Center, 16450 Victory Way. Additional hearings will be held March 29 in Bend, and April 5 in Sisters. If you are not able to attend in person, you may also submit comments to the County Commissioners at board@co.deschutes.or.us

The Deschutes County Planning Commission voted to recommend the draft plan to the Board of County Commissioners in January. A draft of the Plan and additional information is available from the county at http://apps.deschutes.org/cdd/CompPlan/index.cfm.
