The Department of State Lands (DSL) owns roughly 640 acres east of 27th Street in Bend – an area known as the Stevens Road Tract. Part of the land – 320 acres – was brought into Bend’s UGB area in 2016, making it attractive for development. Moving toward development is a long process with many steps allowing public participation along the way. On December 10, 2019, the State Land Board approved a portion of the land for sale – mainly the portion already within Bend’s UGB.

Here’s how you can learn more about the land and be involved going forward.

Next steps: We will monitor interest in any sales through Spring or Summer 2020. Whether the land is sold as a single parcel or divided among multiple buyers may determine what comes next and how the community can be involved – a master plan for a large parcel or a different community input process.

It is expected to take up to two years before any such sales are finalized.
