Today, the Bend Police Department begins enforcing a recent amendment to Bend Code that reduces the number of days a vehicle may park on the public-right-of-way from five calendar days to three business days.
The change is intended to promote parking turnover, shorten the time between when a vehicle is reported as being illegally parked and when the vehicle is towed, and align with the Police Department’s enforcement capacity.
Vehicles parked illegally on the public right-of-way for more than three business days are subject to citation and towing through a complaint-driven process. Community members can report illegally parked vehicles through a parking complaint. Volunteers from the Police Department respond to complaints when they are received. When a volunteer makes contact with a reported vehicle, the volunteer marks the vehicle tire with chalk and documents its location. Three business days later, a volunteer returns to the marked vehicle. If it has not been moved, the vehicle is towed.

As you may recall, City Council adopted an ordinance in December of 2018 to encourage the use of reusable bags and limit the use of checkout plastic bags. It was set to go into effect in July with enforcement beginning Jan. 1, 2020.
Earlier this month, the Oregon state legislature also passed a bill banning single-use plastic checkout bags statewide that takes effect Jan. 1, 2020. The bill is largely similar to the City’s ordinance and also includes plastic restaurant take-out bags and the fee for bags provided to customers is at least five cents (compared to the City’s 10 cent minimum).
