A public information meeting on the Central Area Plan, Part 2 is scheduled for Tuesday, January 23 at 5:30 p.m.  The meeting will take place at the Phoenix Inn located at 300 NW Franklin Avenue. The Central Area Plan Part 2 is a long-term vision for Bend's Central area. 

Part 1 created a framework for future development within the historic downtown core, in addition to adjacent areas to the north, east, and south. 

Part 2 will focus on the larger study area and create a detailed land use, redevelopment, and transportation plan that will preserve and strengthen the historic core.  A land use and transportation plan for the study area, along with a set of proposed General Plan map and text amendments, Transportation System Plan amendments and amendments to the Bend Development Code will be included in Part 2.

The study area encompasses the historic core and adjacent neighborhoods to the north and south, as well as the central segment of the 3rd Street corridor running from Butler Market Road to the railroad underpass. Special attention will be given to the area immediately east of the downtown core and to the 3rd Street corridor lying between the Bend Parkway and 4th Street.
