I like Redmond's community quite a bit- everyone here is understanding of one another and the community as a whole works hard to make Redmond a nice place. Not all of Redmond is that way and I do think that could be a way Redmond could change. There are things that could be done to make Redmond better such as making it a cleaner town and helping the homeless that are in Redmond. I believe the public schools in Redmond are very nice and give the students a lot of different opportunities so they can find what they are passionate about and I think that is really important. There are a lot of opportunities that Redmond as a town and its community connected through the school gives back to students and families. Overall, Redmond has been a nice place to grow up- every town has its flaws, but I appreciate the opportunities I've been given and the life I've been able to live from growing up in Central Oregon.

Love Redmond! Redmond is a calm, quiet town with friendly people. Seems very safe. Ridgeview is an amazing High School. Beautiful parks, close to beautiful lakes, hikes, and a great community feel.
I love my town. While every town has its share of issues, I feel that Redmond is working toward resolving the current issues our town is facing, especially as they pertain to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the issues and protests surrounding race and civil liberties. It is my belief that Redmond will continue to work together as a community and work toward a resolution for it’s citizens.
