In her more-than-10-year career as a hearings officer, Karen Green has heard as many as 500 cases, helping shape what Central Oregon looks like today.
The roundabout at 14th Street and Newport Avenue, above, was one of the improvements that came to the west side of Bend after hearings officer Karen Green denied a development in 1999.
North of Cooley Road and west of U.S. Highway 97, this land stands vacant on what was proposed for a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Green denied the application.
Green approved a plan for two new towers on Awbrey Butte, in addition to a height increase to three other towers and a height reduction to another one.
