In the ‘90s, the city of Bend grew from population 32,569 in 1990 to 52,029 in 2000, more than doubling in size during the decade. That average growth rate was more than three times the state average. A study conducted by the city in 2005 estimated that by 2025, the UGB population would increase to 109,389.
