The City of Bend and the Downtown Bend Parking Advisory Workgroup are working closely together to quickly respond as the needs of Downtown businesses change during this pandemic. As of today, 3/26/20, here are the changes that have been made (until further notice).
The time limits and costs have been removed from all parking lots in Downtown Bend including the Parking Garage, and the North and South Mirror Pond lots. Additionally, restrictions for on-street parking in the downtown core have been relaxed - but will still be enforced for safety impediments such as hydrants, corners, etc.
We have also created seven curbside "pick-up zones" to assist local restaurants and bars with their pick-up services.
Additionally, to assist employees and employers in the Downtown core, permit sales have been waived for the month of April.
We would like to thank the City of Bend and the Downtown Bend Parking Advisory Workgroup for their quick response.
