Deschutes County Seeks Public Input about Visiting Downtown Bend


Deschutes County Health Services invites residents and visitors to complete a brief survey about visiting downtown Bend. The anonymous online survey will be open for public input until Sunday, June 29. The goal of the survey is to gather perspectives on how people view the social atmosphere in downtown areas. 

Downtown Bend is a special place. Because Deschutes County is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all who visit downtown areas, Health Services, in conjunction with the Rede Group, has published the survey. 

The survey will be used in the work of the Deschutes County Health Services Department, and the Shared Future Coalition to help enhance the lives of people living in Deschutes County. Questions gauge the respondent’s primary purpose for visiting downtown Bend, and health and safety related questions which may or may not impact enjoyment of the downtown area. 

The survey is anonymous and available for public access now through Sunday, June 29. Depending on the level of public response, the survey may stay open for a longer period of time. 

The link to the survey is: Results will be shared with key stakeholders and the other interested members of the public.

Together with the public and other community partners, Deschutes County works to promote and protect the health and safety of our communities.
