Mayor Sally Russell and the City Council reached out to community organizations to identify problems to be addressed in 2019. BANA's Board submitted responses to the survey and will participate in a session with the Council on Wednesday, Jan. 16 in City Hall.
BANA listed Transportation Improvements; Emergency Preparedness; and Affordable Housing as three issues to be addressed by the city government. Our vision of changes includes bus service connecting Boyd Acres to retail and service areas, connecting streets within the neighborhood and trails for biking and hiking.
The board also feels Bend needs to update its Emergency Plan and conduct a drill.
