City managers consider region's rapid growth
Central Oregon is among the fastest growing and most entrepreneurial regions in the U.S. And while the region's cities are humming with new ideas, start-ups and capital, they're also wrestling with how to accommodate the rapid growth.
How do cities keep housing affordable? Is there equitable access to economic opportunities? And what will happen to each of the cities' unique character and culture?
Join city managers from around the region to explore their perspectives on those issues and hear where there are opportunities to collaborate — and stand alone.
The panel will include city managers Gus Burril, of Madras, Steve Forrester, of Prineville, Eric King, of Bend, Brant Kucera, of Sisters, Cory Misley, of La Pine, and Keith Witcosky, of Redmond, with moderator Rick Allen, of Madras, Sisters city manager.
The regional forum will be held Monday, May 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Eagle Crest (Juniper Hall), 1255 Cline Falls Road, outside of Redmond. Cost is $30 for members and nonmembers. Lunch is included.
To register, visit www.cityclubco.org or call 541-633-7163. Registration closes at noon on Tuesday, May 1. Registration fees must be paid in advance of the forum.
