Event Description

This webinar will discuss how Bend, Oregon's open space advocates lead the successful move away from sprawl to a more dense, walkable, and vibrant cityscape.

Bend had spent the last few decades struggling with the challenges rapid growth often brings (affordable housing, environmental degradation, cost of infrastructure, culture clashes, etc.). Without a real vision for the future, its city leadership, planning department, and real estate and development industries were intent on continuing with the status quo — even if it meant expanding onto Bend’s signature landscapes — until a small environmental group brought an appeal to the state’s land use court… and won.
