The City of Bend is creating a plan for the Bend Central District Multimodal Mixed-Use Area Project, which includes portions of the 3rd Street Corridor. This plan will look at ways to improve connections for everyone traveling in the area by foot, bike, bus, car, or freight truck. The plan will look at ways to develop the area in the future to include a combination of housing, businesses, and other uses to create a vibrant area.This type of development is called a “multimodal, mixed-use area” or MMA. The plan is expected to be finished by summer/fall 2014.
