Meeting materials released for Oct. 28 hearing to amend Upper Deschutes State Scenic Waterway rules

​Oct. 20, 2015

Bend OR - Meeting materials are now available for a previously-announced (http://1.usa.gov/1ZIzr1h) October 28 public hearing in Bend on a request from Bend Park and Recreation to amend rules covering the Upper Deschutes State Scenic Waterway.

The materials are online at http://bit.ly/deschutes-scenic and include the agenda, background on state scenic waterways in general, and more information on this specific amendment. The change would allow applications for bicycle and pedestrian crossings over the Deschutes River between River Mile 171 and 174.6 [Note: an earlier release did not contain the correct mile markers]. Any future applications would be subject to a standard state review to assure compliance with general scenic waterway standards.

The public meeting will be held at the Bend Park and Recreation District, 799 SW Columbia Street, Bend, OR 97702 on October 28, 2015 from 6-8 p.m. The meeting will include separate information presentations by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and the district, followed by public testimony. Public comment will be accepted until October 30 in writing to OPRD, ATTN: Deschutes Rulemaking, 725 Summer St. NE Suite C, Salem OR 97301, or by email to oprd.publiccomment@oregon.gov. All comments must be received by 5 p.m., October 30, 2015.
