The land use chairs from Bend’s 13 neighborhood associations have teamed up to coordinate a forum for this year’s candidates for City Council. This will be the only forum focused on land use issues, such as development, traffic, parking, and wildfire planning, as well as the effects of growth on livability and the character of Bend’s neighborhoods.
The forum will be held using a virtual platform on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Each of two one-hour panels will feature the candidates for two positions on the November 3rd ballot:
The forum will be moderated by Matt McDonald, News Director of Central Oregon Daily. Matt and the candidates will interact via a video conference, while the public will watch a live stream of the event on YouTube. A recording will also be available afterwards.
Members of the public are asked to register for this free event by going to: https://tinyurl.com/BendNAforum. Details on how to link to the live-stream will be provided there, along with a link to the candidates’ answers to a written questionnaire.
The production of this virtual event is being handled by Connect Central Oregon and OSU-Cascades.
