Affordable Housing Study

We are currently facilitating a community study on affordable housing.  By looking at the issue of affordable housing from various perspectives and learning about current efforts and successful models, the study committee seeks to generate recommendations for addressing the lack of affordable housing in our region. 

Enhancing Outdoor Recreation Opportunities Comes Full Circle

We recently hosted a Full Circle Celebration, recognizing the impacts of the Enhancing Outdoor Recreation Opportunities study/advocacy process.  The completion of the Blue Mountain Region Trails plan, establishment of the Blues Crew, expansion of the Learning on the Land programming, and the release of a 13-part series, “Secret Life of the Forest” on the northern Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, were highlights of the evening.  Click to read the Report of the Implementation Task Force to learn about all of the impacts that this study has had on our region.
