The October version of our regular What’s Brewing series will be like no other. Hosted at the Tower Theatre, Bend Rising: Should I Stay or Should I Go? is where the next generation of Bend’s business community and residents will weigh in on what they will inherit. Young professionals in Bend experience firsthand the impacts of high-cost housing and population growth. Our emerging workforce sees opportunity in urban living, but also wants to retain and enjoy the culture and natural beauty of Bend 30+ years from now as those who will inherit it.
Our guest will be John Savo, a principal, lead architect and self-prescribed “urbanist” at NBBJ, an internationally renowned architecture and design firm. Mr. Savo helped redefine Seattle’s South Lake Union District for millennials and Amazon. He works with communities, both large and small, who want to design spaces for the next generation of people who will occupy and love where they live and work.
