The meeting will be June 4 at 4 PM in the Brooks Room of the Deschutes County Library. Please see the notice below for exact land location (no address is yet assigned).
The Bend Park and Recreation District (BPRD) has released its draft Comprehensive Plan. The draft Plan is the result of collecting comments for nearly two years and sets the framework for planning BPRD parks, trails and recreational facilities for the next ten years.
The draft Plan is available for review and comment at the link below. The link will take you to a comment form which is to be used to provide online comments, and any comments are due by Sunday, June 3. The BPRD will be conducting a public meeting about the draft Plan on Wednesday, May 30, from 5:30 - 7:30 pm at the BPRD office, 799 SW Columbia St.
SWNA board members plan to review the draft Plan and, as appropriate, submit comments to the BPRD and post them on the SWNA website. Its review will primarily focus on those parks, trails and recreational facilities situated within SWNA boundaries and BPRD proposed plans for the future. Board members also plan to attend the above public meeting.
It is recommended that interested parties review the draft Plan and submit any comments independent of SWNA board review.
Project PZ-18-0318 and 0319 involve a proposal by Brooks Resources to develop property in Northwest Crossing between Mt Washington and York, just north of Lolo. The first project changes the configuration of the lots around a newly-built cul-de-sac called Potts Court, which enters off of York. The second project is the actual site plan and details for the new buildings.
Five flex-space buildings totaling about 52,000 sf are planned, with space for multiple tenants. The designs show 1 1/2-story, low profile buildings in a northwest contemporary style.

Here is a notice recently received by Summit West regarding a short term rental proposal. Comments are due 5/21.
The City Council approved moving forward to rezone relevant residential, commercial and industrial land within the city limits in January. The land in question is spread throughout the city and the intent is to align the land with Bend’s comprehensive plan, which controls land use activities within the city.
The SWNA board has contacted city staff to determine what areas in Summit West may be affected by the city’s rezoning plans. Once we receive information, we will provide updates through posts on the SWNA website.
On May 14, 2018, city staff will present a modified public involvement plan with the planning commission about the rezoning project. More information may be found in this May 5, 2018, Bend Bulletin article and by contacting the city (541/388.5580).
The SWNA (Summit West Neighborhood Association) recently received the notice of a public hearing from the City of Bend. The public hearing, to be conducted by the City of Bend Planning Commission on May 16, 2018, will consider OSU’s two-part application as discussed in the notice.
A SWNA board member attended an earlier public meeting regarding this matter and provided testimony. The SWNA is providing this document as an informational item and believes no further action is needed at this time.
