Developers for the Thornburgh Resort have been trying for nearly ten years to get the green light for the project, but have hit snags with filing for bankruptcy and fighting appeals to stop the project.

 

The Deschutes County Commissioners last week heard from Attorney David Petersen, who represents the Thornburg Resort.

 

"This project has ween under relentless pursuit of development over eight years at a cost of 10 milion dolaras to the developer.  And we've tried to meet every single condiion except one, number 38.  So if we've met almost 100 percent of the conditions, how could you say there wans't substantial excercise?"

 

Land Use Attorney Paul Dewey represents thsoe who oppose the development and argued his case.

 

"A number of issues raised here have already been determiend by LUBA and the court of appeals.  And there's been a thorough hearings officer below.  They did not initate to get five year extension.  And even though they've spent a lot of money on this, it doens't mean they're not at fault."

 

The commissioners plan to make a decision on this long legal battle next month.
