The Planning and Development Department plans, designs and constructs parks, trails and recreation facilities for our growing community. Staff uses population data, development data and public input to understand which areas of our community need park and recreation amenities immediately, in the short‐term, and in the longer‐term.

Every five to seven years, planning staff update the District’s Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan serves as the roadmap for where and when the District builds new parks, trails and recreation facilities over the next 10 years. The Comprehensive Plan informs the District’s Strategic Plan and the 5-year Capital Improvement Plan which in turn shapes the annual budget. The District’s Board of Directors most recently adopted the 2018 Comprehensive Plan in July of 2018.

Community involvement is one of the most important elements of the District’s planning and development work. The public helps shape the future of the community by sharing their aspirations and concerns about parks and recreation with staff.

The District seeks public input on each project through one or more of the following techniques:

  • Interviews in parks
  • Focus groups
  • Neighborhood meetings
  • Community meetings
  • Surveys
  • Questionnaires
  • Comment cards
  • Presentations
  • The District’s website

Capital Improvement Plan

The Bend Park and Recreation District develops and maintains a comprehensive Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that is amended each year during the annual budgeting process. The CIP is a planning tool designed to guide the implementation of the District’s Comprehensive Plan and to provide for the acquisition and development of parks and recreation facilities during the succeeding five-year period. The CIP is reviewed annually by the Board of Directors and revised to prioritize the most important needs and to recognize budget constraints.

District Comprehensive Plan

The District’s Comprehensive Plan is a tool used by park planners and the Board of Directors to plan for growth in park, trail, facility and recreation program demands. Based on input from the community, the plan helps guide the future of the District over a ten-year time frame.

The District created its first comprehensive plan in 1980 which was subsequently reviewed and updated in 1986, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2005 and 2012.

After two years of work and over 17,000 public comments, the District’s Board of Directors recently adopted the 2018 Comprehensive Plan.

The current version of the Comprehensive Plan can be viewed via this link:

System Development Charges (SDC) are fees charged when a new residence is built. Through this fee, newcomers to the community pay their share of the costs to build the new parks, trails and recreation facilities needed to serve them. The SDC fees are reviewed each year and adjusted based on an index of current land and construction costs.

A project is underway to review the SDC approach. Learn more here.
