Bend City Council Resolution Gets the Ball Rolling on UGB Expansion
On May 2, the Bend City Council approved a resolution setting priorities for the implementation of the city’s urban growth boundary (UGB) expansion plan. The resolution includes an area plan for the elbow, with planning to begin this summer and anticipated conclusion in winter 2020.
Redevelopment and the creation of an urban renewal plan was approved for opportunity areas, including the Bend Central District, East Downtown, Inner Highway 20/Greenwood and KorPine. Council is continuing to consider funding to extend Empire Avenue and complete Murphy Road, and is expected to make a decision at its June 6th meeting.
