Mirror Pond Project

The Mirror Pond Steering Committee (MPSC) is a collaborative decision-making and oversight body for the Mirror Pond Visioning Project, which was established to develop and implement a long-term strategy to address the accumulated silt deposits in Mirror Pond. The MPSC is comprised of the following five stakeholder groups, with one representative from each group: City of Bend, Bend Park and Recreation District (BPRD), Pacific Power, William Smith Properties, Inc., and Bend 2030. The MPSC was formalized by a memorandum of understanding among its members on November 16, 2010. Members of the MPSC provide general supervision of the project and also sit on the Mirror Pond Management Board. The names of the steering committee members appear in green text below.

The Mirror Pond Steering Committee:

The Mirror Pond Management Board (MPMB) was established by the Bend City Council in the Summer of 2009. It is an independent citizen advisory committee formed to advise the Mirror Pond Steering Committee (MPSC) and City Council on the project's proceedings. The MPMB facilitates citizen involvement on the Mirror Pond Sedimentation and Enhancement Project and reports progress and findings to the City Council. The Board is also charged with reviewing the various recommended alternatives that will be developed for Mirror Pond as well as providing direction and assistance in fundraising.

Mirror Pond Ad-Hoc Committee

Mirror Pond Management Board:

The Mirror Pond Ad-Hoc Committee (MPAC) was established by parallel motions of the Bend Park and Recreation District (BPRD) Board of Directors and the Bend City Council on July 17, 2013. The working group is composed of two members of the BPRD Board of Directors, two members of the Bend City Council, the Executive Director of BPRD, the Community Development Director for the City of Bend, and up to three public members who may be appointed by the MPAC at a later date. It is the purpose of the MPAC to work with project staff and consultants to investigate unanswered questions identified in previous project phases. The Ad-Hoc Committee will present its findings to the Council and the BPRD Board and receive further direction regarding moving forward with the project.
