  • Businesses on the southern tip of the Highway 97 reroute project received a nasty surprise this month when construction caused their east-of-97 establishments to be cut off from southbound customers. Even worse, they say, is the fact that ODOT plans a concrete median in front of their businesses, which would permanently keep left-turn customers from easily accessing their businesses. According to ODOT, a median is the only safe way to construct this section of the highway.
  • The city of Redmond is still wanting to build a community center large enough for many organizations to use and last week officials filled the Redmond School Board in on what the possibilities would be if the center were built near Redmond High School. This concept would require the district's bus facilities to be relocated, as well as eliminate a couple of sports fields.
