Deschutes County 2040 project plans open houses, pop-up events, survey

Deschutes County

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- How should low-value farmland be used? What type of housing should be allowed in rural areas? What role should Deschutes County play in parks and recreation? What type of incentives should be offered to conserve water?

As Deschutes County grows over the next 20 years, staff and community members have an opportunity to provide new direction for growth and development in rural Deschutes County.

Community members are invited to provide their thoughts and perspectives on policy directions for key issues facing the county through the next 20 years. For more information on the Deschutes County 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update project, visit

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 policy directions for a variety of issues. Each meeting follows the same format; there is no need to attend all four meetings. Meetings will be held at the following locations:
