Parking in Downtown Bend is an important discussion in our community. In 2017, the City of Bend invested in a Downtown Strategic Parking Management Plan (to view the full plan, click here). In 2018, the Downtown Bend Parking Advisory Committee (DPAC), and the DPAC Work Committee was formed. This committee achieved several successes:
"We are really excited about the parking changes being developed for Downtown Bend," says Mindy Aisling, Executive Director of the DBBA, "and we are excited to work closely with the new parking manager and the City of Bend to assure that the needs our our businesses and customers are met throughout this process."
The full list of strategies from the Downtown Strategic Parking Management Plan are as follows:

FootZone is excited to kick off our third year of Resolution Runners, an incentive program that aims to keep Bendites moving all winter long! The program takes advantage of FootZone’s weekly runs, with runners earning one point or more for each run or event they attend. Runners earn prizes for every 5 points they earn – cool rewards like warm beanies, blinky lights, warm gloves, and more!
Resolution Runners steps off on Saturday, January 4th, 2020 with an initial fun run, followed by a New Year’s toast, snacks, and an opportunity to mingle with other folks crazy enough to run in winter!
Runners then have the opportunity to earn points and prizes at FootZone runs and events through
February 26th. Resolution Runners is an 8-week program for just $35. Registration and additional details can be found at http://www.footzonebend.com/happenings/resolution-runners/
