Open house set Oct. 24 on Bend's Central District

BEND, Ore. - The City of Bend is creating a development plan for the Bend Central District Multimodal Mixed-Use Area (MMA), which includes portions of the Third Street Corridor.

This plan will look at ways to improve connections for everyone traveling in the area by foot, bike, bus, car or freight truck. It will consider how to include a combination of housing, businesses and other uses to create a vibrant area. The plan is expected to be finished by June 2014.

Everyone interested in influencing the future of the City is invited to attend the first public event for the project. Project staff will provide information and answer questions about multimodal mixed-use areas. The event will be an "open house" format and participants can drop in at any time between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. A brief presentation may be repeated during the course of the evening.  A variety of other materials will be provided to inform people about the project and solicit their ideas and suggestions.
