Physical Description

1 online resource (51 p.)


The City of Bend enters the new millennium following an unprecedented decade of development. Population was estimated at 47,635 in May of 1999. The city more than doubled its area with its 1998 annexations. Many public and private projects were built during the past decade, and many are in planning stages or under construction at this time. Given this history, it is prudent for city government to determine how well Bend’s citizens feel public services are performing, how they feel about communication with their government, and what their concerns are about Bend’s future course.

This document reports a community survey commissioned to the Center for Urban Studies in fall of 1999. It includes demographic profiles and analysis of public assessment of municipal services (including some Parks Bureau services), communication between the government and citizens, and concerns about the future. It compares citizen reactions on these issues according to demographic groupings, particularly older and newly annexed areas of the city.
