State of the City Community Gathering

Join Bend Mayor Melanie Kebler and the City of Bend for a State of the City community gathering on Friday, Sept. 8 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Alpenglow Park (61049 SE 15th St, Bend).

This year’s State of the City is a family-friendly party in the park! The event will feature a short message from Mayor Kebler on City goals and priorities, live music, family-friendly activities, lawn games, police, fire and streets vehicles and information on the various City departments and their programs and services. Local food trucks will also be on site to purchase a bite from.

For neighborhood leaders who missed the ribbon cutting in July, the Bend Block Party trailer will be at State of the City and is an excellent opportunity to see what’s inside!

Want to volunteer to run the neighborhood table? The City would love to have some neighborhood leaders stationed at a Neighborhood District sign-up table from 4-7 p.m. to help people get signed up for their neighborhoods and learn more about the program. Reach out to Makayla Oliver to volunteer.

Otherwise, bring your family and join the fun as we update you on the work the City is doing to address growth and make Bend work!

Help us by letting your members know and sharing the State of the City event on Facebook which will include updates about the event as it gets closer.
