BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Deschutes County’s population has grown over 25% since 2010, and county planning staff are inviting residents to a series of “Deschutes County 2040” events to learn about and weigh in on plans for future growth and development in the rural county, outside of city limits.
Community – Wide Open Houses
The project team is holding four in-person open houses across the county. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about the project and break into small groups to discuss key issues, challenges and opportunities facing rural Deschutes County, and a vision for the future. Each meeting follows the same format; there is no need to attend all four meetings. Meeting information is found below.
