Managing Growth

In the next 10 years, experts estimate that 50 percent more people will move here—that’s 50,000 more people using our already strained transportation system!  And to keep up with the growth, planners say we'll need to build 10,000 more homes in the next 10 years. 

These new homes mean we'll need major new road connections that keep traffic moving, AND safe walkable and bikeable streets. The City of Bend has convened a Citywide Transportation Advisory Committee (CTAC) that's providing input to the goals, strategies and tactics of Bend's new 10-year Transportation System Plan.  It’s a puzzle, and by connecting to CTAC you can stay informed and learn how to get involved.
