Commissioners can serve two 4-year terms, or up to 10 years if appointed mid-term. The Planning Commission conducts quasi-judicial and legislative public hearings on Type III and IV planning applications, and makes recommendations to City Council, as per Bend Code section 1.20.030 Planning Commission. Type III and IV applications, which are heard before the Planning Commission, include Deschutes River design review, master plans and Bend Development Code amendments. This committee has two positions to fill.

 Budget Committee

  • The Budget Committee is comprised of the seven City Councilors and an equal number of citizen members. The committee receives the City Manager's proposed biennial budget and budget message, which explains the proposed budget and significant changes in the City's financial position. The Budget Committee may make additions or changes to the proposed budget, at which time the committee will approve the document and forward it to the City Council for adoption. The Budget Committee also approves a rate of total ad valorem property taxes to be certified for collection. Citizen members serve a term of four years and are subject to the City of Bend policy on term limitations (maximum two terms or six years, whichever is greater). This committee has three positions to fill.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020.

There will be a Christmas Tree Lot at Brookswood Meadow Plaza this year.  Trees for sale now through 12/18.  The space is being donated to T & T Christmas Trees by the Brookswood Meadow Plaza.  A portion of the proceeds from the trees are donated by T&T to J Bar J Ranch.
 "This is our 13th year doing our tree lots and helping our community, youth and families. While we donate from both of our lots to J Bar J (which includes group homes, a shelter, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Grandma's house to name a few), we also give additional help by donating a few trees to needed families, auctions to raise monies for kids, and trees for gift fundraisers. It is important to us to help our community."- T&T Christmas Trees
