Are there too many event in downtown Bend? That was one question posed to three candidates running for Bend City Council, in the Position 2 spot.
 
1110 KBND held a live debate on Tuesday morning. One candidate Ed Barbeau says he would support some restrictions that would help control the number, size, impact and noise of downtown events. 
 
bite "my business does a lot of events downtown - with my restaurant - but i do think there are too many events-  the last time i went down to summerfest- they had vendors in alleys- there were so many vendors it was Insane- and i do feel sorry for some of the businesses down there- it costs them revenue for some of those events - and so i personally would like to see some restrictions. 
 
One of his opponents, Charles Baer, responded to the same question by explaining that he would favor a ban or substantial restriction of cars downtown.  He says that would allow for more events and different types of events.  1110 KBND-AM will run this entire debate again on Sunday, October 14th, at 10 a.m.
