The Growth Management Department brings together the city’s transportation and long-range planning staff to identify and manage projects of a long-term nature, including transportation, land use, and public facility planning.
The Statewide Planning Program requires cities like Bend to provide close coordination between planning for transportation (Goal 12) and urbanization (Goal 14). One of the purposes for doing this is that cities in Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), like Bend, need to reduce vehicular use, not only by increasing the use of alternative modes of travel, but also by encouraging a mix of land uses whereby creating walkable developments.
