A researcher with University of Oregon’s Sustainable Cities Initiative is scheduled to visit Bend on Wednesday to discuss how good planning and design can make cities more sustainable.
Robert Liberty, who is also the former executive director of 1000 Friends of Oregon, plans to give two presentations, both of which are free and do not require reservations.
At noon, Liberty will speak at Cascades Hall, Room 117-118, 2600 N.W. College Way, as part of Oregon State University-Cascades Campus’ lunchtime lecture series.
He will participate in a second, more informal discussion at 5:30 p.m. at the Summit Saloon & Stage, 125 N.W. Oregon Ave., in downtown Bend.
1000 Friends of Oregon organized the event, which is co-sponsored by OSU-Cascades, Cascadia Green Building Council’s High Desert Branch and Central Oregon LandWatch.
