The new park slated for north of Cooley Rd. will top the agenda for Wednesday's meeting at the Elks Lodge. Bronwen Mastro of Bend Parks and Recreation will share the schedule for the park design and public outreach.
Also on the agenda is an update on various proposals for new developments in Northeast Bend. Among them is a Pahlish Homes subdivision at Butler Market and Deschutes Market roads that will have 1,100 housing units, 22 acres of commercial development, a school site and open space.
A public hearing is scheduled for 5:30 Dec. 9 on the proposed Petrosa Master Planned Development, a 179-acre Community Master Plan with at least 1,100 various housing units, 22 acres of Commercial General land, 10 acres for an elementary school and 22+ acres of open space.
This hearing will be before the Planning Commission in the City council chambers, 710 NW Wall St.,
Bend's City Council wants to remove "barriers to development" in order to hasten the construction of new affordable housing units. The goal is 3,000 housing units by June 30, 2021. The staff has proposed a change to Bend Development Code that would eliminate a developer paying for a Traffic Impact Analysis for subdivisions of 20 or less units.
What this means is that any development that produces less than 700 vehicle trips per day would not have to have such an analysis.
