Recommendations of the Vision Steering Committee

Prepared by Cogan Owens Cogan LLC, Consultants

Vision LogoWe envision Medford as an outstanding livable community -- the financial, medical, tourist and business hub of Southern Oregon and Northern California, blending family lifestyles, diverse educational, artistic and cultural resources and a strong sense of environmental stewardship with robust economic activity to create a vibrant place for people to live, work, learn, invest, grow, play, and visit.

Key Elements:

  • Leadership to develop and carry out the City's vision is characterized by the commitment of its elected and appointed leaders and involvement by citizens to produce meaningful, measurable outcomes.
  • Medford is carefully balanced with appropriate housing densities and open space to avoid urban sprawl, define and establish character within and between neighborhoods and other valley communities and provide a quality living environment for all its citizens.
  • Downtown Medford is a vibrant and enjoyable regional center.
  • Bear Creek is an important community asset and feature that connects Medford and ties it to the Bear Creek Valley.
  • Neighborhoods are clean, safe environments for all citizens, including children and senior citizens; they form the backbone of Medford's social infrastructure and are the focus of community involvement and participation.
  • Aesthetic values are apparent in all facets of community expression.
  • Excellent, life-long educational opportunities are available and accessible to all.
