One-Minute Survey

Post Date:10/17/2019 4:17 PM


Weigh in on safe travel and traffic improvement priorities - it only takes a minute! 


The City is working on ways to improve traffic flow and safe travel for the community. Staff and Council are planning for the future and addressing current needs, but we need the community’s help.


The City just launched a one-minute survey that allows our community an opportunity to help prioritize the most highly-desired safe travel and traffic improvement projects. The one-minute survey is available at


Some transportation projects, such as the Empire and Murphy corridor improvements currently under construction, are funded. But many other important needs aren’t. At a special council meeting on Sept. 30, all Councilors said they supported a potential bond measure in May of 2020 as part of a longer-term transportation funding strategy.


The Citywide Transportation Advisory Committee, which is helping the City update its long range transportation plan, recently sorted a long list of transportation infrastructure projects into near-term (1-10 years), mid-term (11-15 years), and long-term (16-20 years) categories.

More community input such as this survey can continue to help us prioritize projects in the near-term category. We will share the results of the survey with Bend’s policymakers as they consider options for a bond measure.
