BEND, OR — Now through Sunday, Deschutes County Health Services is asking for public input on visiting downtown Bend.  Deschutes County’s Julie Spackman told KBNW News they’ll look at experiences in the downtown area, and if participants want to visit with regularity.

Spackman says from there the information will be used by Health Services and Shared Future Coalition to enhance the lives of all people living in Deschutes County.  The survey is anonymous.  Click Here to participate.
