Current annual report

The pandemic took its toll on neighborhoods

As with most things in life, the last few years have been a time of change for the Boyd Acre neighborhood.  The BANA board met via Zoom rather than in person.  However, we still had speakers on important topics of concern to our members.  Kathleen Roche led the Neighborhood Association for three years during this challenging time. 

We anticipate new members and new energy on the board of directors.  We look forward to the annual meeting and an opportunity to gather as a neighborhood community.

History of Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association

BANA is one of 13 Neighborhood Associations in Bend

In the early 2000s Bend's City Council promoted the formation of Neighborhood Associations to improve communications with city residents. Boyd Acres the area extending from the Deschutes River east to the Pilot Butte canal and north of Butler Market Road to the City limits was designated one of the 13 Neighborhoods.  Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA) was formed in 2003.
