County Hosts Tumalo Community Plan Update Open House


On Monday, August 22, Deschutes County Community Development will hold an open house and seek community feedback on draft goals and policies related to the Tumalo Community Plan (TCP) update. The plan serves as a guide for development, capital improvements and land use planning in the Tumalo Rural Unincorporated Community boundary for a 20-year period, from 2020-2040.

The open house will begin at 6pm in the Tumalo Community School gym, located at 19835 NE Second St.

Over the last three months, staff has been conducting community outreach to identify key issues and challenges in Tumalo. The department has used this feedback to develop a series of draft goals and policies to respond to these issues and challenges guide the future of Tumalo. Staff is looking for additional community feedback on these draft goals and policies, before they are finalized.

Attendees will review and provide feedback on the draft goals and policies in several key areas including land use, natural resources, public facilities and transportation.

Can’t make the open house? You can review the policies through our website: starting Monday, August 15.

Send any comments or questions to Peter Russell, Senior Transportation Planner, at or 541-383-6718.
