City Of Bend To Start Renaming Streets

Let me tell you, this can't happen soon enough. While I've lived here long enough to know where the various streets change names, trying to explain it to people from out of town is damn near impossible, especially now that the parkway has split many of them in weird spots or connected them in others.

They plan on starting off small and just dealing with Hill Street, but Bond street is a mess of names, as is the Portland-Olney-Penn-Neff-Alfalfa Market stretch of road (the Bulletin story forgot Penn in that combo), the 8th-Trenton-12th road that runs up the Butte, the Hwy. 20-Greenwood-Newport-Shevlin Park road, etc... . There are even two or three little weird ones in my neighborhood alone (Jones turns into 12th, and Jones heads off on a completely separate road, for example).
