Century West Neighborhood 
Newsletter - June 2016

Deschutes River Trail


More than 150 people attended the Century West Neighborhood Association Forum with the City of Bend and OSU-Cascades at Mount Bachelor Village on April 5, 2016.

Panelists from the City of Bend and OSU-Cascades gave presentations covering a wide-range of topics that included planning, parking, and neighborhood livability, to a full house. Other panelist members included CWNA board member Ken Schofield, who also works with the Bend Neighborhood Coalition, and Andrew Spreadborough, executive director, Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council. Erin Foote-Marlowe, executive director of Bend 2030, graciously moderated an extended Q&A session for audience members after the presentations. 

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the CWNA Forum for their time. The board would also like to extend a special thank you to Nathan Moses from OSU-Cascades, and Mount Bachelor Village for donating the event space.

Century West Neighborhood Map
2016 continues to bring several significant developments affecting neighborhood livability. There will be many opportunities to get involved. Please ask your neighbors and HOAs to join CWNA today!
According to online reports, blogs, and newspaper articles across the nation, Bend scores above average when it comes to the live, work, and play lifestyle. Is it possible to preserve what is most loved about living in Bend?
Bend Neighborhood Coalition Thinks So
Here are a few of the most recent issues affecting livability that the Bend Neighborhood Coalition (BNC) is  working on:

1) The city's noise ordinance and enforcement protocols;

2) Compatability zones around residential neighborhoods - starting with areas covered by the Central Westside Plan;

3) A university district overlay zone;

4) Short-term rental code enforcement; and

5) Informing voters about the Fall election for City Council

Got Weeds?
Even though Bend is taking a one-time break from its annual community weed pulling event, you can help by removing the most unwanted weeds from your yard, boulevard, and alleyway this summer.

If you want to ensure the event happens in our community next year, contact Let's Pull Together to volunteer.
