Oct. 17, 2017 Land Board agenda item
Stevens Road was originally a 643-acre tract of state-owned land located in Bend. Planning and development of the tract is helping to add a mix of much-needed affordable housing to the area, creating opportunities for new businesses to develop, and benefitting Oregon's public schools.
Lands under state ownership. Of the original acreage, 261 acres remain in state ownership, with the potential to be added into Bend's urban growth boundary (UGB) in the near future. During the 2021 legislative session, the state legislature approved a process for the expansion of the UGB, with the additional requirement that certain acres be set aside for housing for educators and low-income families (HB 3318).
Current updates. As part of the process outlined in HB 3318, the City of Bend is developing the Stevens Road Tract Concept Plan, which explains future planning amendments and intended uses and zoning for the site. DSL is working with the City of Bend on requirements outlined in HB 3318, including eventual incorporation of the Stevens Road Tract into the Bend UGB and the sale and transfer of 20 acres of land for affordable housing.
Previous sales and exchanges. A 382-acre parcel of the land was incorporated into the City of Bend's UGB in 2016 and later sold to Lands Bend Corp in November 2020 for $22 million, allowing the development of a mix of housing, businesses, and other uses.
