City of Bend meeting and event cancellations

The City of Bend is taking steps to limit exposure to and spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). In support of state and federal guidelines for social distancing, the City of Bend is cancelling some meetings and open houses, effective today through April 8.

  • All project-based public meetings and/or open houses are cancelled.
  • All standing advisory committee meetings and activities are cancelled.
  • At this time, scheduled City Council meetings will continue to occur, but with social distancing modifications including reducing meeting length, increased space between chairs and encouragement of livestreaming options. Meetings can be livestreamed at

These changes aim to protect the health of our community as well as our work force, so we can continue to provide crucial City services to our customers. City employees are encouraged to stay home when they’re sick. The City is also encouraging telecommuting and remote conferencing meetings for employees when possible. The situation is continually evolving and we may need to make additional changes in the future.
