Hundreds of new apartments have opened up in Bend in the last few months, and hundreds more are on the way. For renters, it’s still a tight market to try to find a place to live. For this week’s Supper Club, Donna sat down with Bend city councilor Nathan Boddie, Bend city staffer on affordable housing Jim Long, and Hasson property manager Melody Luelling, to talk about what’s being done to address the problem.
A special thanks to our Supper Club sponsor, Selco Community Credit Union, for giving us the time and resources to talk about the issues that impact our region every Tuesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
Recently, the Deschutes County Commissioners talked to Donna Britt about two hot local topics. For this week’s Supper Club, Tammy Baney, Tony DeBone and Phil Henderson tackled the Central Oregon housing crisis, the rising homelessness population and issues.

Three guests, good food, and a glass of wine. That’s the recipe for a good conversation in our weekly Supper Club series. This week, join Pamela Hulse Andrews, Greg Fischer, and Kyle Frick as they discuss the latest housing boom now happening in Madras and Prineville, why some local businesses are having trouble filling job vacancies, and the needs of the many versus the needs of the few when it comes to the City of Bend’s latest Urban Growth Boundary proposal.
