Report from BANA's Chair

Jan 21, 2020

At the Jan. 14 meeting, Eric King, City Manager focused on "Transportation issues in Bend". He shared the concerns the City of Bend has in keeping up with the transportation needs of its neighborhoods and businesses. He talked about the process of finding and implementing road improvement projects as well as how the City secures funding through bonds. "The City Council is very interested in community feedback and are wanting to collaborate with neighborhood associations as a way of finding out our needs in an orderly way," said King.  He commented on the success of our outreach efforts.
King spoke to the ongoing and future needs which are funded by system development charges, bond funds, franchise fees, gas tax and the hopeful passage of an approximate 180M transportation bond. He cited the needs based on congestion, public sediment, city planning, Transportation Advisory Committee input and projected growth. Special emphasis was given to the implementation and construction status of the Empire extension and Murphy Road extension projects. He touched briefly upon transit and transportation safety improvement projects
Susanne Julber, Senior Policy Analyst helped us to understand process and timeline. She continued to give a general overview of how the City is working towards keeping up with growth in regards to transportation problems.
Mathew Boller, with SIMA Corporation (the company that revitalized Mountain View Mall into Cascade Village Shopping Center) explained the issues with creating access into the Shopping Center and Business Triangle at Robal Rd. and Hwy 97. He and his company have been raising awareness and suggesting ideas with ODOT to obtain the best outcome for shops and shoppers in the area.
Boller said his firm is impressed with the community involvement in a city of our size and the growth impact.  He praised outreach from the City government and ODOT to make a workable plan that we can all live with. The scope and complications involved make it a very challenging project given the funds that are available.

Welcome to Boyd Acres Neighborhood!

In Bend Oregon

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, Oregon 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.
