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 Bronze, US Metal Works, Advanced Plastics, Mt. Hood National Forest HQ, AEC (technical publications), Johnson RV, and Konell Construction. We have also invested in an optical fiber network that provides lightning-fast internet services to homes and businesses alike anywhere within city limits. A workforce of more than 50,000 persons is available in Sandy and surrounding communities.
Sandy has a historical museum and a number of community events held in our 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!
