Mix and mingle with your neighbors and get the latest updates on Bend's current and future transportation growth challenges from the Eric King, Bend City Manager, break bread with Bill Smith, developer of the Old Mill and get an annual crime update from Sgt. Mike Landolt from PD.
If you're inclined to serve we have several board positions including programs and public safety. If you've never been to a neighborhood meeting before, join us tonight for a public board meeting.
Neighborhood associations provide opportunities for shaping the future of your neighborhood. Membership is open to all citizens who live, own property or operate a business with the association's boundaries.
Neighborhood Associations draw people closer to their city government and closer still to their fellow neighbors. Neighborhood participation gives residents a stronger, united voice in civic life and joins them in shared neighborhood projects.
Neighborhood associations are inclusive, reflecting the diversity which enriches a community. Members include families, singles, retirees, youths, business owners, faith-based organizations, schools, homeowners, renters, and many more people from every background. Formally recognized and well-developed Neighborhood Associations can provide recommendations to the local government on a variety of topics, including:
• Neighborhood streets, traffic control, and patterns
• City services
• Crime prevention
• Capital improvements
• Land use (zone changes, variances, subdivisions, and zoning ordinances)
We look forward to seeing you Thursday, February 8!
