This year, the Neighborhood Street Safety Program (NSSP), which was first created and funded by City Council in 2019, completed its first edition of improvements. This program included the solicitation of street safety project applications from community members that eventually totaled more than 360 locations! With the help of Bend’s 13 Neighborhood Associations and the Neighborhood Leadership Alliance (NLA), eight finalist locations were prioritized and selected from these submissions for geographic equity and to fit within the $800,000 funding available. Thanks to the passage of the transportation GO Bond in November 2020, the program now has $8 million in funding to continue its progress in the years ahead.
