The Bend City Council pulled the $190 million transportation bond from the May ballot. A transportation bond could be back on the ballot again, soon.
Councilors asked staff Wednesday night to take the community’s temperature on the idea.
We can’t say we know how Bend residents feel about it. But as much as the needs for transportation improvements in Bend are real, as much as the bond did a good job of addressing many of them, the uncertainty and economic disruption created by the pandemic is not over.
