How we get there matters. We can all be a part of making Bend a thriving, livable community now and in the future.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
The City integrates best practices for sustainability into its work across departments and in partnership with the community.
The City is working with the community to increase energy efficiency and reduce fossil fuel use for cost reduction, health protection, environmental stewardship and economic stability.
The City provides affordable water, wastewater and stormwater services to customers while balancing the natural environment and sustaining critical water resources.
The City Transportation System Plan update process is underway to create a well-developed transportation system that enables people to safely and reliably get to their destination.
Forests (Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project partner)
The City partners with the Deschutes National Forest to provide wildfire safety and protect the forest as important wildlife habitat, an economic engine for our region, a source of clean and abundant water and a world-class recreational playground.
