Taking cues from a peer city
Bend has often been compared to Boulder, Colorado for its entrepreneurial culture, small town feel with big town amenities and abundance of recreational opportunities. At a public event on October 18, 6:30-8:30pm, Mike Gardner-Sweeney, Boulder’s Director of Public Works for Transportation, will give the audience a first-hand look at how this peer city views and manages multi-modal transportation.
Sweeney-Gardner will share details from Boulder’s transportation master plan, as well as present creative solutions to some of Bend’s biggest transportation concerns at Boulder-Sized Transportation Solutions, at Trinity Episcopal Church, presented by Building a Better Bend and the Move Bend Coalition.
Since Bend is creating its new Transportation System Plan, members of Bend’s Citywide Transportation Advisory Committee will lead this forum and public dialogue on issues both cities share, such as dedicated funding, congestion, transit service, university access, innovative technology, walkability and urban growth boundaries.
Audience questions and comments will play a major role in the event.
When: October 18, 6:30pm
Where: Trinity Episcopal Church, 469 NW Wall Street, Bend
