Town Center design underway
School levy to be presented again
Plans for a "shopping and town
center" took another step forward
June 11 when Tribal Council di
rected staff to begin the conceptual
design process. Still under consid
eration is the campus location,
although the Council wants to know
the community's reactions to design
ideas before making a final site
The location issue was brought
to the table at a recent community
meeting when about 20 tribal mem
bers expressed their preference for
a site away from the campus. Their
recommendation was to deve
lop the area east of the campus,
including the old senior citizens
homes and the alfalfa fields on
Hwy. 26, along the Shitike Creek
Business Application Forms
The tribal planning office is distributing application
forms to tribal members interested in starting a retail
business. The applications initiate the process of work
ing with potential business owners in the planned
"Shopping and Town Center." Applicants are asked to
complete and return the forms by June 25. Further
information can be obtained from the planners at 553
1161, extension 270, in the Administration Building.
floodplain. It's near the area under
consideration by the MOIHb tor
the museum site.
The Council expressed concerns
about development costs in the
floodplain, remembering the 1964
flood. They decided to proceed at
this time with the campus site based
on the recent community survey
which indicated a majority of tribal
heads of households agree with the
campus location. Planners expect
that the final design would have to
be sensitive to the historical char
acter of the campus.
A second levy election is set for
June 30 in an effort to pass the
509-J district school budget. Voters
will be asked to decide on a
$3,69 1 ,233 for general operation of
The same amount was presented
to voters at the May 19 election but
failed to pass by six votes.
The amount of the levy to be
presented to voters is the amount
necessary to operate the district
schools explains 509-J Superinten
dent Darrel Wright. Nothing was
put in the original budget that
could be cut. The budget is up only
four percent, says Wright.
Passage of the levy would result
in a tax increase of 14.3 percent for
property owners. They would pay
$ 1 1 . 1 9 per $ 1 ,000 assessed valua
tion. This is in addition to 64c per
$1,000 for passage of a school bus
levy June 19.
As always during an election, it
is important that voters go to the
polls and vote.
What, no Fourth of July?!
What would Warm Springs be
like without a Fourth of July cele
bration? Well, community members
may find out this year if no interest
is shown in the preliminary plan
ning stages. All community members
are encouraged to attend a plan
ning meeting Thursday, June 18 in
Carol's room at the Community
Center. If people don't attend this 7
p.m. meeting, there may be no

The pickup rolled onto the pas

After more then 50 years since its
construction, the Oregon State High
way Department is renovating the
narrow Deschutes River Bridge at
the southern entrance of the Warm
The 53-year-old bridge will be
almost doubled from the current
width of 30 feet to a total width of
56 feet including two, 1 2-foot travel
lanes; two, 10-foot shoulders and
two, six-foot walkways. All widen
ing will occur upstream from the
existing bridge, bringing the outer
edge of the shoulders adjacent with
the Deschutes Crossing Restaurant
sign. There will be no turn lanes
into the Crossing or Rainbow Mar
ket because of lack of space.
According to project manager
Jerry Thackery work will stop in
early July because "traffic is too
intense" in the summer. Work will
resume immediately after Labor
Day weekend and continue until
December when the steel beams
are put in place. Work will cease
until late February when crews will
resume work until the project is
completed, in July or August, 1988.
Warm Springs employees com
ing from Madras have been faced
with short, intermittent trafficdelays
while construction workers haul
dirt, dig up, replace and resurface
pavement. However, delays are to
be no longer than 15 minutes and
should cease altogether within two

employment coordinator Hamilton

people have been working on the

Ellis Runk. project foreman for
Hamilton Construction, commended

he's put into" his job. He also
stated that they've had "really good"
success with the locals recruited to
work on the project.
