City of Bend Survey: Development Community
The City of Bend has a goal of approving 3,000 housing units before June 30, 2021. With this in mind, they are seeking feedback from the development community on specific projects seeking to build three or more housing units that you’ve worked in the past two years that failed to move forward to construction.
Whether you’re employed directly in development or as an engineer, attorney, land use consultant, or other sector directly involved in development your feedback is important. Please take 5-10 minutes to fill out the survey here.
All responses are anonymous; if you’d like to provide feedback on multiple projects you can take the survey more than once.
If you have questions, feedback, or would like a follow up conversation once the survey closes in early November, please contact Ben Hemson, Business Advocate, at email@example.com or 541-388-5529.
