A speaker known around the world for promoting walkable communities is speaking in Bend today and tonight.  Dan Burden is the keynote speaker at Bend's City Club. The title of his message is "From Blight to Boon." Jeff Monson with the City Club says some of the challenges for cities are big highways that cut people off from them. "He's well-known in the field for bicycling, walking, promoting walkable communities, community design. His catch phrase is: “building towns for people, town centers and communities for people and helping them develop parks and encourage active participation.” At least 100 people were signed up for today's City Club event. He's also speaking tonight at St. Charles in Bend at 6 p.m. While he's in Central Oregon, he's also meeting with local leaders and planners to take a look at potential improvements on Galveston and on parts of Third Street in Bend.
