Working together with city leaders, Neighborhood Associations ensure we will all have a voice in shaping Bend’s future, keeping it a great place to live for years to come.
The state of Oregon forecasts that an additional 30,000 people will make Bend their home in the next 7 to 10 years. Without the input of our residents, Bend's future will be primarily influenced by real estate developers, tourism operators and other commercial interests.
"Neighborhood Associations maintain and improve the quality of life in the city, increase citizen participation in local decision making, and form an effective partnership between the city and neighborhood residents." - City of Bend
