Introduction/Timeline
On April 17, 2009, the City of Bend submitted a proposal to expand its urban growth boundary (UGB) to the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) for review.  The submittal was supplemented in June of 2009 and determined to be complete in August of 2009.
 
On January 8, 2010, DLCD Director Richard Whitman issued a report in response to Bend's proposal.
 
January 29, 2010 was the deadline for appeals of the Director's report.
