At the February 6, 2024, City Council meeting, the North Bend City Council voted unanimously on a Motion to approve the North Bend Way Complete Street Corridor Plan.

As a main street through town, North Bend Way connects residents and visitors to our neighborhoods, parks, local businesses, and other community gathering places. Using the Complete Streets approach, this important, highly visible local street will be enhanced with more accessibility, safety, and connectivity for people of all ages and abilities whether you are walking, riding bicycles, driving, or taking transit.

The Complete Street Corridor Plan establishes a vision for five miles of North Bend Way. In July 2022, the City began work with consultant, Parametrix, to prepare the conceptual Complete Street Corridor Plan. Community input on conceptual plans was provided at two public workshops on June 13 and June 15, 2023, and also through an online survey in June.

While the result is expected to enhance quality of life for residents, it also incorporates the community’s value in maintaining North Bend’s rural, small-town character. The plan does so by integrating wayfinding signage, banners, plantings, seating, lighting, and more.

The plan looks at a wide variety of aspects that can create a greater sense of place and safety, such as trails, sidewalks, pedestrian rest areas, gateways, trail crossings, entrances, and intersections.
