City Club of Central Oregon’s June Forum — Envisioning Bend’s Future


Are you worried about the future of Bend — how growth and change may affect our community? Are you excited and committed to help the greater Bend area become the best it can be — both now and for coming generations? If so, please join the City Club of Central Oregon Tuesday, June 14 forum: Envisioning Bend’s Future. Our community nonprofit, Envision Bend, will be revealing the Bend Vision Project.

“The past few years have brought increasing change to Bend and residents are ready to engage in shaping the culture and landscape of our community going forward,” said Kim Gammond, executive director of City Club.

This yearlong community visioning initiative is reaching broadly and inclusively across our community, leveraging our core values to create a vision and plan that will help Bend be the best community it can be for all its residents. In this interactive forum we are looking for your concerns, your passion, your thoughts and your big ideas about the future. Come and help us shape the future of Bend!

“Bend is at a crossroads,” said Laura Fritz, executive director of Envision Bend. “Given everything our community has experienced with the pandemic, economic recession, social justice movement, and the rapid influx of new residents in the past few years, we as a whole community must use the next year to rethink and reposition our city for the future so that we ensure Bend remains a vibrant, resilient, inclusive, healthy and innovative community for people to live, work, study and play.”

The forum will be held in person at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes as well as livestreaming on City Club of Central Oregon’s YouTube Channel Facebook page Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

This forum is brought to you by City Club in partnership with Envision Bend and sponsored by the Desert Pine Group at Morgan Stanley, the Central Oregon Association of REALTORS and the City of Bend.
