Keeping Bend Livable

As a citizen’s lobby, the Neighborhood Coalition hopes to speak for the interests of people who LIVE in Bend and contribute to the community as full-time residents. We want to help create a balance in public policies that recognize — in addition to business and tourism — the value of residents who invest their lives in our community.

  • We believe that healthy, cohesive, vibrant residential neighborhoods form the backbone of a strong city.
  • We believe that public policies should preserve and improve upon this great asset.
  • We believe that livable residential neighborhoods encourage small businesses to locate here, creating a more diverse and sustainable economy.
  • We believe that people are happier, more productive, and more civil when they are able to enjoy peace and quiet at home, safe streets, and the residential character of their neighborhoods.
