Summer 2019

Neighborhood Street Safety Program


The Neighborhood Street Safety Program website is now live!  SBNA will be actively working with the city and the Neighborhood Leadership Alliance on this program to make city streets safer.

What is the Program?

This Neighborhood Street Safety Program (NSSP) is a new program for small-scale, local, residential street projects to address pedestrian and bicycle safety, safe routes to school, speeding, intersection control and crossings, and other local street traffic safety related issues. 


Click through the link above to learn more about the program, view program documents and review informational resources. The links to fill out the online application or download the paper application will be available beginning August 5th, 2019.

SBNA will be sharing more information with the neighborhood over the next few months.  Look for more!

Update on Plastic Bag Ordinance

On July 17, City Councilors voted to repeal the City law to comply with the State law. The repeal helps avoid confusion between the City ordinance and State law, while also preventing the use of more types of single-use plastic bags than City ordinance.


Informational materials and enforcement will become projects of the state government.


The City is still supportive of limiting single-use bags and encourages you to
“Bring your bag, Bend!”
