Bend To Host Climate Friendly Area Open House

BEND, OR -- Bend officials are considering where to encourage development for people to live, work and play without requiring the use of a car. They’re looking for public input on possible locations for these so-called Climate Friendly Areas.

The city will host a Climate Friendly Areas Community Open House next Tuesday, November 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Environmental Center (16 NW Kansas Ave.). You can also attend virtually at this website

Climate Friendly Areas are part of the Climate Friendly and Equitable Communities rules required by the state that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by changing land use patterns. The end result will involve designating walkable, connected areas that provide a mix of businesses, housing and amenities such as parks and schools through code and policy amendments.
