The Growth Management Department brings together the city’s long range planning and transportation staff to identify and manage projects of a long-term nature including land use, public facility and transportation planning.
The Statewide Planning Program requires cities like Bend to provide close coordination between planning for urbanization (Goal 14) and planning for transportation (Goal 12). 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.
