The Neighborhood Street Safety Program (NSSP) is a new program for small-scale, residential street projects to address pedestrian and bicycle safety, safe routes to school, speeding, intersection control and crossings, and other residential street traffic safety related issues.

In the 2019-2021 biennial budget, the City Council approved $800,000 to fund the program. Last fall, the City received more than 360 applications for projects all across Bend (Map Tab 1). These projects were then reviewed and prioritized by the Neighborhood Associations (NAs) in which they were located. Each NA submitted its top one or two projects for advancement to the NLA, which resulted in a list of 25 priority projects (Map Tab 2).

City staff packaged these 25 projects with additional details such as demographic data, crash data and cost information and provided this to the NLA in December. NLA representatives ranked their top 15 projects, considering safety and geographic equity. The results of the rankings highlighted eight top-priority projects – all from different neighborhoods - that addressed traffic flow and safety in neighborhoods (Map Tab 3).

These eight projects will now move into design and outreach. In May 2020, the NLA will revisit the projects for a final stamp of approval.
