Request for proposals (RFP) for community-building program design and facilitation from Central Oregon LandWatch: Download RFP here.

A project of Central Oregon LandWatch, the BCD Initiative is building momentum and support for the Bend Central District’s transformation into a vibrant, healthy, and resilient mixed-use neighborhood. The vision and guiding principles for the BCD’s redevelopment have been articulated through existing community plans, our neighborhood transformation survey, and extensive outreach.

As the City of Bend begins its Urban Renewal Planning process in early 2019, the BCD Initiative aims to provide structure and resources to the BCD Coalition so that stakeholders can effectively advocate for the BCD vision and the community’s needs throughout the Urban Renewal Planning Process and beyond.

Central Oregon LandWatch (COLW) is seeking specific proposals from interested Facilitators who are capable of strategic group development and facilitation, transformational conflict resolution, and have experience working with diverse groups to achieve equitable outcomes, especially when related to community planning.

Questions regarding this RFP should be directed to Moey Newbold, Director of Urban Planning, at 541-647-2930 (x801) or email:
