Regional forum: Growth’s Impact on our Communities

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.
