Juniper Ridge Advisory Board Reports to City Council
The Juniper Ridge Advisory Board presented a data driven report of its analysis to the Bend City Council on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Katie Anderson, BANA resident, told the council many changes should be made to the plan for Juniper Ridge including reduction of the overlay and sub districts.
She said local developers should be allowed to select parcels of 20 to 50 acres as those will be more practical to develop. Analysis of the market indicates a 500-acre parcel of Light Industrial zoned land will not attract developers at this time. By doing this the City of Bend could participate in public/private partnerships to extend smaller pieces of infrastructure(streets and major utilities) while the developer would be responsible for infrastructure within its parcel.
The BANA board thanks the three area residents who served on this labor intensive effort, Katie Anderson, Jim Beauchemin and Kristine Johnson.
Between June 2019 and October 2020, the JRMAB met a total of 10 times to review and develop a work plan for Council. Those residents recommend Council take the following actions:
• Phase I: In order to foster development interest, address interest from businesses that may need to relocate to Juniper Ridge due to infrastructure improvements, and initiate the sale of existing platted property, the JRMAB recommends the revision BDC Section 2.7.2000 – Juniper Ridge Overlay Zone, BDC Section 2.7.2030 – Employment Sub-District, and the Juniper Ridge Design Guidelines.
• Phase II: Supported by the market feasibility analysis from ECONorthwest and acknowledging the City’s capacity to develop, JRMAB recommends a development approach that limits City’s involvement in physical development outside of major infrastructure, and recommends the sale of parcels of approximately 20-50 acres in size to potential private developers. This would be accomplished by:
o Solidifying a land disposition strategy the focusses on establishing infrastructure priorities;
o Reconfiguration of BDC Section 2.7.2000 – Juniper Ridge Overlay Zone, to support large tract platting and development; and
o Reducing the applicable area of BDC Section 2.7.2030 – Employment Sub-District, the Juniper Ridge Design Guidelines, and the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions for Juniper Ridge Employment Sub-District (CC&Rs).
• Phase III: Understanding that future infrastructure considerations are being studied along the northern boundary of the Juniper Ridge Overlay Zone, as well the opportunity to reevaluate the 2016 Urban Growth Boundary in 2021, the JRMAB recommends evaluating the following actions to assist in long-term development of Juniper Ridge:
o US 97 North Interchange Coordination;
o Evaluate Residential needs in the Area; and,
o Reevaluate 50-acre Large Lot Industrial requirement.
