SCNA's Role in Land Use / Development
The City of Bend keeps the Neighborhood Association informed of any significant potential land use activity in our Neighborhood and adjacent Neighborhoods, and the Land Use Committee sends a representative to public meetings associated with development in the neighborhood. We also seek to make sure that you, as neighbors, have an opportunity to know what is happening with land development before you see construction begin.
The City assigns a project number to all land use actions that come before the Planning Department. All paperwork associated with the project is available online, on the City of Bend website. If you choose to write to the City regarding any land use issue, please include the project number to make sure your comments get to the right place.
The links below can be used to find info on current land use activity in the Southern Crossing neighborhood. If you are having trouble finding what you are looking for, please let us know and we will try to help.
Developers and others that are required by the City of Bend to contact us may write and e-mail
