BEND, Ore. -

Please join Bend staff members as they provide an update on improvements made to permitting procedures provided by the Community Development Department (CDD).

 These changes are based on suggestions from the “Blue Ribbon Committee,” a citizen advisory group that was formed to review CDD’s permit review procedures.  

Although staff will provide information on some of the recent changes to our processes, please come prepared to ask questions or provide feedback about your experiences with land use, building or engineering permit reviews.

 Feedback will lead to a more in-depth discussion of the different permitting services provided by the City and how such processes can best meet the community's needs.

The event will be held Monday, April 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Bend Parks and Recreation District Administration Building, 799 NW Columbia St. in Bend.  

For more information, contact Mel Oberst, Community Development Director, at 541-330-4017, or moberst@ci.bend.or.us.
