The City of Bend has adjusted the proposed Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) to include an additional 80 acres of vacant land. This new parcel, in addition to the original staff-recommended 3,659 acres proposed on June 12, will bring the total to 3,739 acres.
There are two purposes for doing so, the City says.
One is to recommend that a proposed school site be included in the UGB. This site is also the subject of a current General Plan amendment application submitted by the Bend-LaPine School District to amend the Bend UGB to include the school site.
The second purpose is to ensure that any consideration of a UGB expansion in this area includes right of way for Skyliners Road and public facilities that would be located in the road right of way. This area is located on the west side of the current UGB, on the north side of Skyliners Rd., abutting the current city limits. This site is currently designated as Urban Reserve, and has been part of the study area for the UGB expansion for over a year.
