The Core Area Project is an effort to create a common vision and plan for the urban core of Bend, an area that includes The Bend Central District, East Downtown, Inner Highway 20/Greenwood and KorPine site. Each of these neighborhoods were identified in the most recent Bend Urban Growth Boundary Expansion as “Opportunity Areas” with the potential for new housing development in the center of town.

The City of Bend will host a series of educational pop-up events at area businesses throughout the Core Area during the month of May to share information about the Core Area Project. Stop by any of the events below to learn more from city staff and other stakeholders:

  • Saturday, May 4, from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Box Factory, 550 SW Industrial Way
  • Monday, May 6, from 4 – 6 p.m at Grocery Outlet, 694-B SE 3rd Street
  • Thursday, May 9, from 4 – 6 p.m. at Boneyard Brew Pub, 1955 NE Division Street
