BEND, OR -- Bend’s Urban Growth Boundary expansion plan received final state approval, Tuesday, following a required 21-day period without any appeals. The plan adds 2,380 acres of land for housing and employment to the city’s UGB and includes space for parks, open space and schools. Dozens of volunteers and staff worked on the plan over the last 12 years. 


It will result in changes to the city’s Comprehensive Plan and Development Code, which will impact future development. City Councilors are expected to work with staff in February, during its goal setting process, to identify how to implement the new UGB plan.
