PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE OF JUNIPER RIDGE
Located in northeast Bend, the 500-acre industrial and business park is situated at the center of the Central Oregon region.
In the Fall of 2017 the Bend City Council asked the City’s Economic Development Advisory Board (BEDAB) to convene a group of stakeholders tasked with determining a path forward at Juniper Ridge that improves opportunities for development at the city owned industrial site.
After meeting over a number of months the working group released their recommendations on July 3, 2018. The group’s key recommendations were:
- The Bend City Council should seek to divest itself from direct oversight of Juniper Ridge and assign management to a Council-appointed temporary Governing Board.
- Over the next 12 to 24 months, this Governing Board should be tasked with developing a high-level framework plan to guide future development of Juniper Ridge. The board should also review existing Juniper Ridge governance documents to determine which need updating or revision.
- The Bend City Council should allocate dedicated city staffing support for the Governing Board and for implementation of its initiatives.
The BEDAB will discuss the recommendations at their meeting on Monday, July 9th at noon in Council Chambers and will meet with Council on the topic during the quarterly Board and Commissions check in session on July 18th beginning at 3 pm.
