The City of Bend has completed a three-part study that will inform the development of a parking plan for the City.
The project began with a Downtown Parking Study, was followed by a Citywide Parking Study providing a technical review of parking requirements and policy for the entire city, and wrapped up with a study of the Galveston Avenue Commercial Corridor of Bend. Rick Williams Consulting and the City conducted the study in three overlapping parts.

Part 1 has been completed. On June 7, 2017 the Bend City Council adopted a Resolution No. 3067 directing staff to implement the goals, strategies and recommendations of the City of Bend Downtown Strategic Parking Management Plan. Below are the adopting documents.
