The City of Bend has launched the public survey for the 2020-2025 Consolidated Plan, which gives the community an opportunity to comment on needs and priorities for affordable housing and community development programs. The anonymous survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and is open to the public through Friday, Nov. 30, 2018.
Work will begin on Empire Blvd improvements on September 10 with a closure of the street from the 18th St. roundabout to Purcell. Phase i of the Empire Extension project will upgrade the street to full arterial standards including pavement, curbs, sidewalk on the south side of the road, drainage control and landscaping.

Welcome to our neighborhood. Boyd Acres is one of 13 areas defined by the City of Bend. Each neighborhood has an association funded by the City. Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA) is NOT a Homeowners Association. BANA's boundaries are Purcell Rd. on the east and the Deschutes River to the west. The southern boundary is defined by Mt Washington Dr., the North Unit Irrigation Canal and Butler Market Rd.
Bend is an incorporated city in Deschutes County, one of three counties that are often referred to as Central Oregon. Whether you are a prospective resident, visitor, a new or longtime resident, these pages and links will direct you to more information that will help you enjoy and deal with all the neighborhood has to offer.
Our neighborhood is named for Charles William Boyd, the iconic pioneer, who came to Central Oregon in 1904, drawn by the potential to grow his cattle business. He purchased six acres by the Deschutes River with prospects for a water wheel and dam. A year later his family joined him and eventually his holdings grew to 600 acres supplying beef across the region. The area became know for its ranching and timber industries.
BANA welcomes newcomers and long time residents to participate in our activities and meetings. See Get Involved.
