They have held several public forums to give the public an opportunity for feedback.  The last one was held this week.

 

The plan looks to make it easier to get around what's called the Central District downtown.

 

That's the area around Third Street from Revere to Burnside.

 

Wendy Robinson with Bend's Community Development Department says their plan should relieve congestion.

 

"And Third Street is a major north-south street that runs through the district and if we don't do anyting, the congestion is going to get exponentially worse.  We need to put a complete street system network together, so we can diversify paths people are taking to their destination."

 

The development plan for the downtown Central District also calls for a combination of housing and businesses.

 

They are trying to improve connections for everyone traveling downtown.
