BEND, Ore. (AP) - Deschutes County commissioners are working to determine whether part of a former mining site near Terrebonne should be used for a residential development.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/ZwRd82 ) commissioners held a public hearing Wednesday for a development proposal of 19 residential lots on the eastern side of the former mining area. The county has until July to decide whether the project brought forward by real estate invest company, Lower Bridge Road LLC, of Vancouver, Washington can move forward.

Opponents of the plan have cited dust concerns and industrial waste disposal at the site where mining was conducted for most of the 20th century.

State officials have monitored a work plan that addresses potential environmental concerns at the site. The plan includes groundwater monitoring wells and installing equipment to monitor dust particles.
