There is currently some construction activity at the site of a proposed hotel at the corner of South Fork Ave and Bendigo Blvd near downtown North Bend.
This is not the beginning of hotel construction. It is site cleanup only. The City is currently performing code enforcement at the overgrown location where the developer did initial site improvements in 2014 and then halted work.
The developer of the proposed hotel has delayed the project multiple times over the past 12 years and the project approvals lapsed due to inactivity.
Over the years the site has become overgrown by invasive and non-native weeds. The City requires property owners to maintain their property. This site has become unsightly and has been the subject of many citizen complaints. That resulted in city code enforcement requiring the developer to clean up the overgrown land parcel.
Currently, it is unclear the exact duration of the cleanup work.
