Since 2005, Envision Bend has led our community in planning for the future. Many of Greater Bend’s biggest successes of recent years can trace their roots in part to our community’s original vision – a new university campus, a regional transit system, a more diversified economy, more parks and trails, just to name a few.
Today, newly rebranded and reorganized, Envision Bend continues to work with government, business, community groups, and people of all backgrounds and perspectives from across the Bend area to help shape our future, making Bend a better place for everyone.
Envision Bend brings diverse stakeholders together to educate, engage and empower all members of the Bend community to have a voice in our city’s future.
Envision Bend is the steward and champion of our community’s Vision, ensuring that the Vision remains vibrant, relevant and strategic by:
- Convening the community periodically to revise and refresh the Vision.
- Assembling diverse community stakeholders to advance initiatives and ideas grounded in the Vision.
- Welcoming and engaging the community in a nonpartisan, inclusive manner to promote a healthy and livable city for all.
