Neighborhood Associations (NA’s) were created by the City of Bend to facilitate the flow of information and services between the City and its residents (homeowners, renters, businesses). Click here to visit the City’s page for a full description of neighborhood associations vs. a home owner’s association (HOA).
The Old Farm District Neighborhood Association of Bend was founded in 2003 to serve the residents and businesses in the area roughly between Hwy 97 to the west, 27th St. to the east, Reed Market Road to the north, and Murphy Rd. to the south. MAP
We welcome any and all residents of the area to join any of our meetings and help us improve or maintain the community that we call home.
The purpose of the Neighborhood Association is to make each neighborhood better.
Neighborhood Associations regularly receive and distribute information from all of the city
departments, county departments, and the Bend Park and Recreation District on topics such as land use, traffic safety, and park development news. Neighborhood Associations also have direct contact with City Counselors. The OFDNA Board of Directors welcomes any and all help in any of those fields.
Please attend a Board meeting or General Membership meeting, or drop us an email and get involved.
Each Neighborhood Association is a voluntary association of residents and / or businesses recognized by the City and created to provide opportunities to focus on: crime prevention, community garden, clean-up projects, traffic safety issues, sidewalk improvements, bicycle access ways, trails and parks, noxious weed abatement, fire protection plans, and more.
The purposes for which OFDNA is organized are:
To enhance the livability of the neighborhood by establishing and maintaining a line of communication and liaison between OFDNA, the City of Bend, and other Neighborhood Associations.
To provide an open process by which all members of OFDNA may involve themselves in the
affairs of the Neighborhood.
To perform all acts related to these purposes.
To perform only acts that will assist to serve educational, social and charitable purposes.
*Please note: Neighborhood Associations do not get involved in neighbor – to – neighbor disputes.
