After six months of surveys and research, on Monday, public affairs organization Hubbell Communications released the results of a new study on growth in Bend. The goal of the findings is to change the conversation about growth from whether it should happen or not to what residents and community leaders can do to better adapt to it.
Ward Hubbell, president of the public relations firm, says he hopes the findings of the study will help residents, both new and old, to bridge that gap between perception and reality, and move forward together as Bend grows in the coming years.
