North Bend to hold virtual Town Hall to discuss Water Conservation Ordinance

The City of North Bend will hold a virtual Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, May 26th at 6PM – so residents can learn more about the city’s proposed Water Conservation Ordinance (WCO).

Read our earlier story about North Bend’s WCO HERE.

According to a news release, during the next round of comprehensive plan updates, North Bend is required to include a Sustainability Element, which must incorporate water conservation measures. 

“The State Department of Ecology and State law require public outreach to discuss the Water Supply Plan in a public forum with feedback from the community,” explained City Administrator David Miller.

The meeting will consist of staff presenting the Water Supply Plan, the Water Conservation Ordinance (including recent amendments), strategies for reducing water loss, incentives to help fund water conservation and public outreach efforts to encourage water conservation.  

Gray and Osborne, the City’s consultants for the Water Supply Plan, will also be present.

The meeting will provide an opportunity for the public to provide feedback and ask questions.

This will be a virtual meeting in accordance with the state’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order. Instruction for how to access the virtual zoom meeting can be found HERE.

If passed by City Council, North Bend’s water conservation ordinance would go into effect this summer.
