By 2028, experts predict another 35,000 people will move to Bend, a city that earlier this month topped a national list for highest rental rate increases in the nation and decreasing levels of home ownership.

Rental rates and ownership are two key indicators that Bend’s housing market isn’t ready to accommodate this major 40 percent population increase. Part of the problem: A missing middle. Those duplexes, triplexes, townhomes and courtyard apartments that fill the gap between single-family homes and multi-story apartment buildings—the kinds of homes that meet the needs of young professionals, retirees, and others flocking to Bend for a new kind of urban living nestled at the base of the Cascades.

Dan Parolek, the nation's premier expert on these diverse housing types, will break down the problem and describe tangible solutions to Bend’s current and future growth challenges.

Audience members will also give direct feedback to the Bend Collaborative Housing Workgroup—led by Bend 2030, Brooks Resources, Central Oregon Association of REALTORS ©, Central Oregon Builders Association, Housing Works and the American Institute of Architects Southwestern Oregon Chapter—that is developing a slate of recommended policy tools and incentives to jump start Bend’s middle housing market.

This event is presented by Ascent Architecture and Interiors and brought to you by Building a Better Bend and Bend 2030 with additional sponsorship from Brooks Resources Corporation, Miller Lumber, Northwest Crossing, Bryant Lovlien & Jarvis, Taylor Northwest, Central Oregon Association of REALTORS ©, and Wall Street Suites.

Thank you so much to our sponsors who are committed to building a better Bend!
