If you feel traffic on residential streets is too fast and too dangerous, the Slow Down, It's Our Town safety campaign may be of interest to you. Mountain View Neighborhood Association is spearheading the effort to change the speed at which Bend drivers traverse city streets.
They are presenting plans for the campaign on December 12, 6 p.m. at the Northeast Fire Station on Jamison Road. Any BANA resident is welcome to attend and learn how we can all change the way we drive.
The City of Bend has a survey on the internet that anyone may answer to give opinions about how our City government is performing its role in managing Bend. Go to www.bendcommunitysurvey.com
The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Welcome to our neighborhood. Boyd Acres is one of 13 areas defined and funded by the City of Bend. Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA) is NOT a Homeowners Association (HOA). Neighborhood Associations are mechanisms for communication between residents and the City Council. Each association has a representative on the Neighborhood Leadership Alliance, an official city committee.
BANA's boundaries are Hamby Road 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. The north boundary is north of Cooley Road.
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.
