The recommendations were shared with the Bend City Council and were the subject of a City Club of Central Oregon forum entitled, “Economic Development in a Housing Crisis: Real Solutions for Solving Our Middle Market Housing Crunch.”
The steering committee for the workgroup included COAR, Central Oregon Builders Association, Brooks Resources Corporation, Housing Works, OSU-Cascades, the American Institute of Architects Southwestern Oregon Chapter, the City of Bend, and a retired land use attorney.
Additionally, over 25 community members participated in the workgroup, including builders, developers, architects, housing advocates, city councilors and planning commissioners.
A comprehensive report detailed 12 tools for improving middle market housing to the Bend City Council, several of which are now under active development. To read the full report, click here: READ THE RECOMMENDATIONS.
