Septic to Sewer Conversion Program
The Bend City Council adopted amendments to the Bend Code on December 19, 2018, to establish the Citywide Septic to Sewer Conversion Program (Link to Bend Code Ordinance). The program is the result of 18 months of work with the Septic to Sewer Advisory Committee and recommendations from the committee. The program is funded through utility rate revenues, and allows residents to apply for roughly $2.5M annually to extend sewer lines into neighborhoods through a Neighborhood Extension Project. The program becomes effective on February 1, 2019. Applications will next be accepted in February 2020.

Our part of Bend was annexed into the city in 1998 and is still growing. This map shows where major infrastructure projects – like parks, schools, roads – are planned or already being built along with key zoning areas highlighted. Zoning determines where things like apartments or commercial buildings can be placed, so it’s important to know what’s in your area. This map isn’t an exhaustive list, so be sure to join our newsletter to keep up with smaller projects and news about things like vacation rentals.
