BEND, Ore. (AP) - A central Oregon county is getting about 140 acres south of its fair and expo center in a land swap with the state.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1GfN4HW) the Oregon Department of State Lands is relinquishing the acreage and getting a Deschutes County-owned parcel of equal value north of the Redmond Airport.

County commissioners approved the deal this week in an exchange expected to be finalized toward the end of 2016.

County Administrator Tom Anderson says there are ideas but no current plans for the land.
