Last week, two in-person Town Hall meetings were held on the topic of Houseless Strategies and the proposed Shelter Code amendments to the Bend Development Code. These events were held at Caldera High School with 160 people in attendance on Monday, April 25th and 134 people in attendance on Wednesday, April 27th. You may have attended, or at least viewed news articles or segments on TV. If you missed these in-person events, we are pleased to let you know they were recorded, and you may view them on YouTube.
