City of Woodburn, OR
Cultural identity and a sense of place serve as a pivotal part of how communities are perceived, and – perhaps more importantly – how these communities move forward with a unified clear vision for the future. It is this sense of identity that facilitates common values, traditions and economic and social wellbeing.
Woodburn, Oregon, the ‘City of Unity’ as it is affectionately referred, exemplifies what cultural diversity can and does contribute to a community if it is encouraged, embraced and nurtured throughout all development processes. It is not an easy task, but it is one that Woodburn has at its core, and by all indications, the city is poised for growth.
