Building a Better Bend

Bill believes that Bend needs to get ahead of growth, instead of reacting to predictable ramifications. When visiting with Bend residents, he hears consistent concerns about traffic, safety and noise. Bend desperately needs a plan to address livability issues associated with growth. We will end up somewhere; the only question is whether we choose that future, or it happens to us.
Some of Bill’s areas of focus regarding livability include:

  • Downtown Safety
  • Growth Management
  • Noise Management
  • Tourism Reduction
