Community Town Hall Meetings

News from Representative Walden
Dear Friend:

I wanted to remind you of the community town hall meetings I am holding near you next week. I need your input on the biggest issues facing our communities and our country, and hope you’ll join me at these town halls so that I can hear from you directly. The meeting locations and details are listed below, and I look forward to seeing you there.

In the U.S. House, I’m working hard — along with President Trump and his team — to roll back costly regulations created under the previous administration, relieve burdens created by government agencies in our rural communities, and create jobs in Oregon. Improving federal land management, protecting our Constitutional rights, and putting an end to mismanagement and mistreatment at the VA are also top priorities for me.

At these meetings, I’ll give an update on these issues and take your questions and comments. I regularly visit and hold meetings in each of the 20 counties in our nearly 70,000 square mile district. In fact, I held 27 town halls in 2016 alone (at least one in each county), and I’ve held 137 since 2012. While these town halls require a lot of “windshield time” in the car, I rely on the visits as one way to help me stay in close touch with local communities in Oregon.

Dorchester Conference

Rep. Walden live telephone town hall

Dear Friend:

I’d like to invite you to join me in a live, telephone town hall discussion I will be holding on Monday, February 6, at 10:45am. During the meeting, you’ll get an update on my work to grow the economy and solve the issues confronting Oregonians, and you’ll also have an opportunity to ask questions. I look forward to hearing what issues are on your mind, and have gotten very positive feedback from people who enjoy the substantive discussions, and listening to what others from around our enormous district have to say. Some people prefer this way to communicate because it’s too difficult for them to attend the town halls in person. For others the travel distance is simply too far, or they just aren’t comfortable in that setting.

To register for the meeting, please click here to sign up to be called Monday morning. If you cannot make this meeting, but would like to register for future telephone town halls, please contact my office by clicking here or by calling 800-533-3303. This is my first telephone town hall of 2017, and you can be sure that I will hold more throughout the year. I also recently held my first in-person town hall of the year in Lake County, which marked my 130th since 2012. These events are effective ways to hear from Oregonians, along with Facebook, Twitter, and, of course, mail and email.

Again, to register for the telephone town hall meeting, please click here.

I’d also encourage you to sign up for my free, weekly E-Newsletter, like my page on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter for updates on the latest news from Oregon and Washington, D.C.

Thank you, and I look forward to you joining the telephone town hall on Monday! It’s an honor to represent you in the U.S. Congress.

Best regards,

Greg Walden

A facilitator will ensure that everyone in attendance has time to speak, listen to others, and propose solutions. The Forest Service is working with partners to schedule additional meetings, which will be announced in the near future via email and news updates.

In 2014, the Forest Service released a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Proposed Revised Land Management Plan related to the Blue Mountains Forest Plan Revision and received over a thousand comment letters. Based in part on that feedback, the three Blue Mountains National Forests have worked with stakeholders to identify topics for further discussion – including the Pace and Scale of Restoration, Livestock Grazing, Access, and Wilderness.

A Forest Plan describes the social, economic, and ecological goals of a National Forest and provides a framework for future management decisions. The National Forest Management Act of 1976 requires each National Forest to prepare a Forest Plan and revise it every 15 years to address changing needs and conditions. The current Forest Plans for the Wallowa-Whitman, Umatilla, and Malheur National Forests are from 1990, and the Blue Mountains region has changed significantly since that time.

Meeting notes from previous Forest Plan Revision meetings are available at, and the notes from new meetings will be posted to this website as well.

For more information, please contact Peter Fargo, Public Affairs Officer for the Blue Mountains Forest Plan Revision, at 541-523-1231.
