BEND, OR -- It’s taken nearly a decade, but the state has finally approved Bend’s urban growth boundary. The city’s proposal to grow the UGB by 2,380 acres is much smaller than a version rejected by the state in 2010, and expands the boundary in small portions on the west, north and south, and northeast and southeast edges of the city.

This effort is the result of years of work and more than 70 public meetings to create a plan that could gain final approval. It’s a blend of infill and expansion to accommodate projected growth in housing and jobs.
 
Oregon’s Department of Land Conservation and Development received four objections but found the proposal satisfied all applicable state laws. There is a 21-day appeal period; appeals are due by December 5.
