City hosting public workshops for Bend’s Transportation Plan

Post Date:01/09/2019 10:40 AM

The City of Bend will hold five public workshops for Bend’s Transportation Jan. 23 – 31.

Attendees are asked to stay for the entire workshop, if possible, to contribute to all of the workshop activities.

This event location is accessible and children are welcome. Sign language interpreter service, assistive listening devices, materials in alternate format such as Braille, large print, electronic formats and audio cassette tape, or any other accommodations are available upon advance request.
