Message from the Mayor

Surrounded by farmland, nurseries and the Sandy River, the 10,600 residents of Sandy experience a rural lifestyle while still having the urban amenities of nearby metropolitan Portland, just 25 miles away.

The city has a unique mix of employers including Maiden Foundry, US Metal Works, Advanced Plastics, Mt. Hood National Forest HQ, AEC (technical publications), Johnson RV, and Konell Construction & Demolition.  A workforce of more than 50,000 persons is available in Sandy and surrounding communities. We have also invested in a city-owned optical fiber network that provides lightning-fast internet services to any home or business within city limits.

Sandy has a historical museum and a number of community events held in the downtown corridor. Visitors and residents find a wide selection of restaurants and shops to visit, and families especially enjoy surrounding parks including Meinig Memorial Park and its Fantasy Forest, where the annual Sandy Mountain Festival is held every July.

We pride ourselves on being a "business-friendly" community.  We are ready to help your local business expand, and we encourage businesses looking for a new home to explore what our community has to offer.  Contact our Economic Development Department and let us know how we can help your business thrive!
