The City of Bend is adopting a new format for discussing proposed changes to the Bend Code regarding camping on city property. The Round Table format will be used on September 27 and 29. Residents are invited to register for in person or virtual attendance.
Two roundtables are currently scheduled:
· 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at Council Chambers (710 NW Wall St.) or online. Stakeholders at this meeting will be representatives from Council Advisory bodies. Register to view the event online via Zoom
· 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, at the Barnes & Sawyer room at the Deschutes County Administration Building (1300 NW Wall St.) or online. Stakeholders at this meeting will include community members experiencing houselessness, non-profit outreach service providers, community and business groups, and public agencies (including elected officials). Register to view the event online via Zoom
Due to space limitations, the City encourages the public to view the roundtables via a livestream, which is listed above and at www.bendoregon.gov/camping-code.
There will be additional opportunities for the community to provide input on the proposed code before Council votes on adopting a code later this fall.
