The committee consists of 13 members, with one member from each of the 13 Neighborhood Associations recognized by the City. The following Neighborhood Associations are looking for candidates to replace their current representatives:
Bend residents interested in applying for the committee should first verify which Neighborhood Association they live or own a business within using the online map found at bendoregon.gov/neighborhoods.
