On Sept. 1, the North Bend City Council unanimously approved the hiring of Rebecca Deming as the city’s new Community and Economic Development Director. She will begin her new position in October.

Deming is the current Community Development Director in Desert Hot Springs, Calif. Prior to that, she served as the city of Beaumont, Calif., Assistant Director of Planning/Community Development Director for over a decade.

She holds a bachelor of science planning degree from Cal Poly University, and a master’s degree in public administration from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
