It was another beautiful week in Bend, Oregon and a terrific week in Downtown Bend. Our on-the-street crews did a bit of extra deep cleaning, continued to keep snow and ice removed from Downtown walkways and began documents some much-needed repairs in the district. We'll be working with the City of Bend and building owners to get these items fixed this spring.
We also applied for the PPP loan and the Travel Oregon grant. Any and all opportunities that we have to infuse money into Downtown Bend is a top priority to us. Fingers crossed that we'll be awarded both, and it will allow us to do more promotion & beautification of our beloved district.
We worked with the Bend Chamber and Chamber Advisory Board going new legislature , and learning where we can lend our support to help our small business community. We also continued to work with the Downtown Bend Parking Advisory Committee on fixing up the garage and preparing to roll out a merchant validation program.
Finally, we held over a dozen interview looking for the best candidate for our new Sales and Marketing position. We'll be excited to announce our candidate later this month!
