The demographic profile ranges from young families to retirees.
Long known as the “HUB” of Central Oregon, Redmond has attracted newcomers from all over. During the last 20 years, our city has steadily grown to more than 30,000 citizens today. This has brought about rapid change and remarkable success. Current data tells us the city will be home to 50,000 by 2040. This presents unique challenges and opportunities, such as how to enhance what our community values the most while preserving our culture and character.
Redmond is home to the region’s commercial airport and is located at the crossroads of the main transportation artilleries of US Highway 97 and US Highway 126. Redmond offers abundant recreation opportunities in all directions. The community continues to transform itself with new restaurants, brewpubs, boutiques, and lodging, combined ...with dynamic outdoor recreation activities, a bustling farmers market in the summer, and outdoor ice skating in winter. Add in a few open-air music events and an expansive public art program, and Redmond is fast experiencing a renaissance.
City leadership is dedicated to fostering a business-friendly climate where traditional family-owned enterprises, high-tech industries, and a variety of major corporations all thrive.
