Speed Limit Bill Heads to Senate

A new bill is making its way through Salem that would allow cities, like Bend, to lower speed limits below the limits set by the state. Proponents of the bill think that slower speed could be beneficial for historic neighborhood or neighborhood with lots of car and foot traffic.
Bend’s representative Cheri Helt added amendments to the bill that would specifically allow Bend’s North West Crossing neighborhood to take advantage of the bill if it is passed.
