Redmond 2040 Plan Update Summit Feb. 6
City Invites the Community to Attend Redmond’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan Vision Update Meeting
Redmond, OR – Last summer, the City of Redmond launched Redmond 2040, a city-wide community engagement process to update its Comprehensive Plan. On Thursday, Feb. 6 from 6:00-7:30 p.m., the City invites residents to a community Meeting at City Hall, 411 SW 9th St. Redmond, OR 97756.
Since May 2019, over 600 community members have participated in events, community conversations, and online surveys, sharing their vision for how Redmond should grow and evolve over the next 20 years. The Feb. 6 meeting will be an opportunity for attendees to review and comment on the vision statement, land use scenarios and goal statement drafts culminated from current public engagement.
“We reached many people last summer and would like to continue to receive community input to guide the development of our Comprehensive Plan.” said John Roberts, Deputy City Manager. “The involvement of the community is key to developing a plan that accommodates growth while preserving Redmond’s identity.”
The Comprehensive Plan is Redmond’s primary land use planning document. The plan establishes a series of goals and policies that guide growth and development in Redmond over the next 20 years, including all activities related to natural and man-made systems and services. City leaders use the Plan to manage expected population and employment growth, coordinate public investments and make decisions about new shops and businesses, housing and neighborhoods, transportation, parks and trails, and more.
Redmond last updated its comprehensive plan nearly 20 years ago. Since then, the City has experienced pronounced growth and development. Today, Redmond is a community of 30,000 and is expected to grow to more than 40,000 by 2040. The challenge – and opportunity – is to create strategies that respond to this regional growth while preserving and improving assets like Redmond’s thriving agriculture and industrial businesses, distinct neighborhood identities, unparalleled access to nature and outdoor recreation, and important public spaces like the Dry Canyon and other civic amenities.
