City Club to host Mirror Pond forum

Bend Visionaries Discuss the Future (or Fate) of Bend’s #1 Icon


February 21, 2013

City Club of Central Oregon’s February forum will be an open conversation with experts and community leaders about the specific, science-based physical options available to the community to address the filling in of Mirror Pond.

Opening the conversation will be a brief technical presentation by local hydrologist Joe Eilers with MaxDepth Aquatics, Inc., the company who conducted the hydroacoustic mapping of Mirror Pond in 2005.

The remainder of the session will be devoted to a discussion of the menu of options that could theoretically be deployed in the effort to maintain Bend’s aesthetic, iconic Mirror Pond.

The discussion will be guided by a panel including:

  • Jim Clinton, Mayor of Bend
  • Mike Hollern, Brooks Resources’ President and CEO
  • Gary Fish, President of Deschutes Brewing
  • Ryan Houston, Executive Director – Upper Deschutes Watershed Council
  • Gabe Williams, hydrologist

This will be an opportunity to test out your own ideas about what might work and also to find out whether you can live with some of the structural ideas that are out there.
