Join Local City Managers as They Explore the Challenges

Central Oregon is among the fastest growing and most entrepreneurial regions in the U.S. And while our cities are humming with new ideas, start-ups and capital, they’re also wrestling with how to accommodate the rapid growth. How do we keep housing affordable? Is there equitable access to economic opportunities? And what will happen to each of our cities’ unique character and culture?  

Join city managers from around the region to explore their perspectives on these issues and hear where there are opportunities to collaborate—and stand alone.

Carpool to the regional forum!

If we ALL drive alone, we put 6,000 miles of travel on our transportation system, take up 200 parking spaces and put 8,500 pounds of CO2 into the air.

If HALF of us carpool next month we save wear and tear on Cline Falls Highway, extending the life of that roadway, get to park closer to the front door and keep our Central Oregon air clean by reducing greenhouse gas.






Add your trip-find a match!

Anyone who logs their carpool trip to the forum has a chance to win a new Hydroflask-and who doesn’t need one of those!??
