It was another great week at the Downtown Bend Business Association (DBBA)! This week we held our monthly board meeting. At the board meeting we engaged in a robust discussion about the future of Downtown Bend and how to meet the needs of our district. With the new EID specification being presented to City Council in March, the board worked to define the EID boundaries, rate, scope of work and duration. All board meeting minutes can be found here. If you are interested in serving on the board, we'll have 4 new position open in July. Please let us know if you are interested and we'll let you know when the application process begins.

We got all of the holiday decorations completely taken down, finishing up with the Holiday Tree just 2 days ago. We are really grateful to our community partners for helping us by suppling a lift for us to do this work. As a small non-profit, if we had to rent a lift every time we needed one, decorations would soon become cost-prohibitive for our little organization. We also have come home to the truth that many of our holiday decorations have come to the end of their life. We'll be looking at ways to fundraise the money necessary to purchase decorations to replace these assets over the next year. If you are interested in donating, or helping us find donors, please contact us.
We met with several building owners in the district and got some wonderful feedback, suggestions and kudos. We love to hear from our stakeholders. If you are interested in scheduling a meeting with us, please click here. If you'd like to make an anonymous comment or suggestion, click here.
