It was a week filled with accomplishments at the DBBA! As we've mentioned before, since the onset of the global pandemic, we've seen an increase in trash, litter, graffiti and stickers in the downtown core. Our team is meticulous in making sure that all of these unwanted items are removed/cleaned up before guest come into downtown and our stores open for the day.
We are also looking at ways to add more flowers downtown this summer. We've been evaluating the best way to do this, including looking at redistributing our current 50 flower planters in downtown, adding additional planters, or adding additional hooks for baskets. We are currently in the R&D phase of this project, and should have more information on costs and options soon.
We do want to celebrate, however, that we have placed our order for the 100 downtown flower baskets that will be installed in Downtown Bend for the summer of 2021. Due to the fact that we are still suffering a reduced budget due to COVID19, we are not sure at this time how we are going to pay for these assets, if you are interested in donating to our nonprofit that this dedicated to increasing the vitality of Downtown Bend, click here. If you are interested in volunteering to help us fundraiser, click here. (Thanks!) After the summer of 2020 when we were unable to have flower baskets due to COVID19, the board hear the feedback from our community on the importance of these assets and is now working to find new ways to fund this important piece of our downtown beautification.
This week, we our new Sales and Marketing director started. Developing this position will allow us to grow in several ways.
This week we also held a merchant meeting regarding parking changes in Downtown Bend, and held several meetings with stakeholders to gather all of the information and support needed to roll out the merchant validation program.
The scope of the DBBA is vast, and this just touches on a few tiny pieces of the work we did this week, if you like to know more, please contact us.

It was an exciting week in Downtown Bend as we managed the first real snowstorm of the year. We hired extra seasonal help to make sure that we were able to keep downtown cleared and accessible. The City, DBBA, and downtown businesses worked together to keep downtown looking it's best!
We worked with the Chamber of Commerce to learn about new legislation and weigh in on how those might impact small businesses. From issues big and small, the DBBA works hard to advocate for our small business community.
We met with the City of Bend and Brooks Resources to further evolve the vision for the development, expansion and modernization of the business district. The DBBA board & staff is planning and preparing for the future of Downtown, that would love to hear from you! Click here if you'd like to share your thoughts.
The EID proposal for 2021 was fully decided, and will go to City Council on 3/17. If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
Additionally, we worked hard to develop the new merchant validation program, talked to a lot of folks about parking and worked with the COB and DPAC to further parking management in the downtown corridor.

What a wonderful week! It was announced this week that Deschutes County was set to move from "Extreme Risk" to "High Risk", allowing restaurants to open for indoor dining up to 25% capacity. Whoohoo! It's so great to begin to see a light at the end of the COVID tunnel.
This week the DBBA hired a new Sales and Marketing Director, and began the process of training a this individual to further the DBBA's mission of increasing the vitality of Downtown Bend. We also hired several temporary staff to make sure that we are able to handle the winter storm at our front door. We are confident that we can continue to offer excellent snow removal service to our stakeholders.
This week was also a lot of back-end work. Researching CRM's for nonprofits, QuickBooks features, setting up new computers, getting Microsoft 365 ready, and instituting to practices and procedures to increase efficiency in the organization.
We also began our stakeholder audit using the GIS website tool and Deschutes DIAL to verify all properties in the district.
We had several meetings to further our plan to develop a committee to develop a long-term plan for Downtown Bend that will serve to hold the vision for the DBBA, COB and other organizations as our city continues to grow.
It was fun to promote downtown for the Valentine's day season. We have such great businesses, that promoting them is easy and fun!
