At the virtual ‘Listen & Envision’ workshop, Bend residents will discuss community values, challenges, and ways to make Bend a better place.

About this event

We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to stand up for the greater Bend area. With input and support from community members and partners, the Envision Bend nonprofit organization is overseeing an inclusive process to craft an Action Plan to make Bend a great place for all.

We want to make sure the Action Plan is bold and visionary — and that it represents the priorities of people in the community. This five-year Action Plan will include a vision statement, strategies, projects, and programs, as well as lead partnering organizations to see the work to fruition. The Action Plan is scheduled to be completed and released to the community in 2023.

Community input is vital to the Action Plan. As part of what is known as the Bend Vision Project, the Envision Bend organization is hosting a series of virtual “Listen & Envision” workshops to gather input on community challenges and solutions from residents, so that local priorities can be reflected in the plan. We want to make sure that the plan tackles the most pressing challenges and delivers for all of those who call the greater Bend area home.

Join a virtual event and have your voice heard. During the 1.5-hour virtual workshop, you will hear about the Bend Vision Project’s planning process and you will have the opportunity to provide input about the future of the community. The event will be led by a moderator who will help guide the conversation around a series of questions
