27th Street sewer line construction
In July, the City of Bend will kick off a nearly two-year construction project to build a new sewer line down 27th Street - a hub for medical, retail, employment and residential users. This will bring considerable construction and heavy equipment to the area as crews dig significant trenches along the 27th Street corridor and into Medical Center Drive.
This project will change how thousands of Bend residents access medical facilities, shopping and more. The City strongly encourages everyone who uses 27th Street to visit our 27th Street Sewerline Project Kickoff meeting to prepare for these changes.
5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 at Desert Streams Church parking lot (near the intersection of 27th Street and Bear Creek Road).
At this meeting, project managers will outline the project, explain target dates and schedules, and discuss the end result – a more sustainable and much needed sewer system. Bend’s sewer system – crucial public infrastructure - is at capacity. For information visit our website at bendoregon.gov/SEI.
Also, Bend City Councilors Nathan Boddie and Casey Roats, who participated in the Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Group process that led to a citywide plan for sewer improvement priorities across Bend, will be relocating their Office Hour (regularly scheduled for the fourth Monday evening of the month) to 27th Street area to discuss sewer plans or any topic of residents’ concerns.
Please drop in and meet your Councilors:
6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, June 27, in the café at Barnes & Noble at 2690 NE Hwy 20 in the Forum Shopping Center. Project managers from the sewer project will also be at this Office Hours.
Energy Efficiency Direct Installation Project
As part of Bend's participation in the ongoing Bend Energy Challenge project, a special energy-efficiency program for homes is coming up in November and December. In collaboration with the Energy Trust of Oregon, free LED bulbs, low flow showerheads and water-saving faucet aerators will be installed in Bend area homes by our visiting AmeriCorps team!
The Bend Energy Challenge, a program of the Environmental Center, is offering a free and convenient way to make your home more energy efficient. Through the LED Light Bulb Installation Program, The Bend Energy Challenge will install up to 16 LED bulbs in your house – all for free.
Today’s Light Emitting Diodes, commonly known as LED light bulbs, can be six to seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights and cut energy use by more than 80 percent. LEDs can also last 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs.
During an installation appointment, the team will determine and address highest traffic areas in the home. Existing incandescent bulbs will be replaced with up to 16 energy-saving LEDs in standard or recessed can fixtures. As a result of the installation, residents can save up to $160 on utility bills each year.
For even bigger savings, the team can also install water-saving features such as high power, low flow showerheads and kitchen aerators.
Residents can sign up for the program at http://www.bendenergychallenge.org/freebulbs and will receive a phone call to schedule the installation. The installation appointment takes approximately one hour.
This program is made possible through collaboration with the Energy Trust of Oregon. The Bend Energy Challenge is able to install light bulbs for customers served by Central Electric Coop and Pacific Power, and water-saving features for customers who heat their water with Pacific Power or Cascade Natural Gas. The team can only replace incandescent bulbs in high traffic areas. This offer is currently available in zip codes 97701, 97702 and 97703.
