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 area seize on the opportunities.

Envision Bend brings people together from all corners of our community to discuss and shape our shared future. And beginning this fall, we will launch a 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!
