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.
The DBBA is a small non-profit dedicated to improving the economic vitality of Downtown Bend.
