Work on transferring Bureau of Land Management land started eight years ago and it is finally coming to fruition.

 

Oreogn's newest city, wants to use the land to expand its wastewater treatment facility and build a permanent home for its "Greatest Little Rodeo in Oregon."

 

Former LaPine Mayor Stu Martinez was at the county commission meeting Wednesday when the transfer was accepted.  He reminisced with county commissioner Tony Debone, who lives in LaPine.

 

"It was quite a journey.  I do remember the first meetings.  Tony was the Chairman of the Board for the Park and Rec District and he came up with this crazy idea and no one knew if it would work.  But it turned out for the community and county."

 

This land transfer literally took an Act of Congress because the land was federal land.  

 

The official transfer is expected to be completed sometime in June.
