Community Open House: Share your input on Downtown Bend Parking Strategies, by Anne Aurand, Bend Communications Director
Downtown Bend is a vibrant commercial and residential area. People visit downtown Bend to experience an environment that is unique, active and diverse. A well-managed parking system helps make it safe, easy and convenient.
The Southern Crossing Neighborhood Association was selected to participate in the Civic Equity Project. The proposal deadline for the proposal was early April. It was announced today, that out of 22 applications, 12 groups will be included in the cohort.
The kick-off event for the Civic Equity Project will be 6-8 p.m. on Monday, May 8. Each cohort selected for this project will be able to invite a few key members from their respective organization.
Being a part of this team means receiving intensive organizational development and advocacy training over the two year span of the program, from April 2017-April 2019. This project will be engaged to create a pivotal moment in the engagement of our organization to serve in civic dialogue and decision-making in Bend and Central Oregon.
The time commitment will vary for each organization but will require a minimum of 5 hours per month, and as many as 15-20 hours per month for those organizations wishing to participate at the most intensive level.
Here's what SCNA can expect over the life of the project:
As your chair, I am looking forward to working with key members of the SCNA Board and working with Bend 2030 and Opportunity Knocks to learn strategies that will really make a difference in our organizational development in shaping the future of our neighborhood.
Please join us Thursday, May 4, 2017, from 5 to 8 PM at the Bend Parks & Recreation District Office (Riverbend Conference Room) for 13 Bean Tex-Mex Style Soup, Chili, and Cornbread.
The site is hosted by the Association Board.
