Envision Bend brings diverse stakeholders together to educate, engage and empower all members of the Bend area community to have a voice in our city’s future. As a community convener, we are committed to engaging stakeholders across the full spectrum of our community in a nonpartisan, welcoming and collaborative manner to promote a healthy and livable city for all.
Envision Bend (formerly known as Bend 2030) was founded as a 501(c)3 organization in 2007 to champion the community’s vision and ensure its implementation. For more than 15 years our organization has worked to help the community realize its long-range vision, bringing people together to address Bend’s biggest challenges and greatest opportunities. Currently Envision Bend is managing a community-wide visioning process to create a new long-range vision for the greater Bend area. This 18-month project will wrap up by mid-2023 and the Executive Director will play a major role in helping our dynamic board of directors advance the projects and initiatives contained in the new vision’s first five-year action plan.
