Envision Bend

For generations Pilot Butte has served as a beacon and wayfinder for Central Oregon, guiding people as they traversed this region in search of a better life. Today, it also symbolizes what Envision Bend seeks for our community – a clear sense of direction and better lives for all our residents.

No one wants to lose the things we love about living in Bend. And yet the world is changing around us every day. Change brings challenges, but also opportunities. Our goal is to help greater Bend seize on the opportunities.

Envision Bend brings people together from all corners of our community to discuss and shape our shared future. Join our community dialogue to envision a more vibrant, inclusive, and resilient Bend.

You can help us plan for the future of Bend in a number of ways. Stay informed. Get involved. Support us by volunteering. If you can, consider donating to our effort. Start right now by signing up for more information and we’ll keep you up to date. And please join us on this journey!

A New Community Vision For Bend

The world is changing fast and so is greater Bend, with big challenges and exciting opportunities in front of us. On both counts, it’s critically important today to think about and to plan for our future.

Envision Bend has launched the Bend Vision Project to engage community members in developing a vision action plan for this place we call home. Listening to all voices we are learning firsthand about the challenges our community faces—and how we can build on opportunities to move Bend and Central Oregon forward.

We invite all community members to join the conversation and help shape the future of greater Bend, improving the quality of life for everyone.
