2022 Annual Report

We hope you had a safe and enjoyable holiday! With 2022 coming to an end, we are excited to share our annual report. We welcome you to review the report to learn about the ORC and the exciting progress we’ve experienced over the past year.


The report also includes several things you can expect to see from us in 2023. Most importantly, we will soon begin developing a new Strategic Plan. This project will utilize community feedback to develop a plan, guiding ORC resources over the next 5+ years. The effectiveness of our ability to serve the community relies on amount of input we receive, so we will need your help spreading the word and encouraging participation in the community survey.


We wish you a safe and successful 2023!
