The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

On Wednesday, June 6 at 9:30 am, organizers will hold a public meeting at 1225 NE 3rd Street to discuss turning the property currently occupied by the Platypus Pub/Brew Shop into a drive-thru coffee shop. According to the City of Bend's Planning and Engineering Department's project information webpage, the project application involves a "Starbucks with drive-thru." The public meeting is required because the drive-thru portion of the proposed 2,000-square foot restaurant would require a conditional-use permit, according to City of Bend Senior Planner, Aaron Henson. Henson said the owners of the property filled out their applications before having the required public meeting to get local input.

The Platypus Pub site was targeted for redevelopment before the new owners purchased it in 2016. That redevelopment included a strip mall that was proposed that never went anywhere, Henson said.




Speaking of Starbucks, Platypus Pub
