Getting from Here to There: Transportation Visions and Realities for Central Oregon

Getting from Here to There: Transportation Visions and Realities for Central Oregon

The City Club of Central Oregon’s July forum will provide insights on current transportation and transit projects in Central Oregon, including an update on the status of Bend’s Transportation System Plan (TSP—our 20-year assessment and plan for transportation needs) as well as a review of available Federal and State funding for transportation and transit improvements. Innovative regional priority changes incorporate responses to climate change, accommodating more electric vehicles, and increasing transit and bike/pedestrian mobility.  Yet a significant question remains: Without dedicated funding streams for transportation, can Central Oregon fulfill these priorities and optimize transit for all, particularly in the face of our relentless growth?

 “While transportation funding comes from a variety of sources and we invest in it locally, the reality is there is way more need for improvements than we can fund. We have tough choices ahead,” said Kim Gammond, Executive Director of City Club.

The forum is moderated by Mike Riley, Executive Director at The Environmental Center and will feature presentations from Russ Grayson, Assistant City Manager at the City of Bend and Andrea Breault, Transportation Director at East Cascades Transit.

Brought to you by the City Club of Central Oregon with sponsorship from Ashley & Vance Engineering, Brooks Resources and Commute Options.
