Currently, BEDAB as its known, is a nine member board. But they want to increase it by four to have more key business leaders included.
Bend's Business Advocate, Carolyn Eagan will present the proposal to the city council.
"It's been clear as our economy recovers and the interest in the business community about what Bend is going in economic development, we need to have more industry representatives. What this change does, it allows nine voting members to vote on the board which will represent Bend's most prominent industries."
BEDAB was created by the Bend City Council to provide input and advice on economic development.
