When charging stations are ubiquitous, I would seriously consider buying an EV.

We definitely ought to do away with fossil fuels, and EV's are a way to do it, but we ought to address our out of control car culture too and make vast, revolutionary investments into robust public transit.

What you do mean "reconsider"? I considered one before, now I'm strongly considering it.

No one can afford one in this economy and Biden. Think buying a electric vehicle will help the environment, climate. Does not exist the climate is always changing

No, not really

I can buy a ****LOT**** of gasoline for the money an Electric Vehicle would cost... ****AND**** my gas-consuming vehicles are a ****LOT**** more cost-effective over the next 10 years ***AND*** much less damaging to the environment NOW and in the FUTURE. I will NEVER buy an EV.

Electric cars are great for around town. They can not replace my truck for towing. Taking a boat to prineville reservoir from bend and back is pretty taxing if not impossible for most Electric vehicles currently. I don't want to make it home with 3% battery hoping nothing happens along the way.

I would never be able to afford an electric car and they are worse for the environment when it comes to the batteries in them. Plus a new battery would cost more than the care itself. And I wouldn't want one to begin with. It is the worst idea ever!!!

They are still to expensive, don't have a far enough reach and there is not enough infrastructure. We aren't there yet. Maybe in 10 years, but not now.

I am considering an electric vehicle, but gas prices really don't play a part in this decision.

Will never buy an electric vehicle! The cost and maintenance over the long term just don't pencil out.

I will when they are feasible they are not I am in the auto business they have just as many negative's as positives. But in 5-10 years maybe we will see Hydrogen or Bio fueled would have been a better way to go but whatever Politicians think is best for us

We need to find a better way to store electricity before electric vehicles will be feasible for the whole of society.

We have enjoyed 3 concerts this yr. Since the remodel the acoustics are way better! I can see how the home owners can be bothered by the noise. They should have priority. The venue should be out in Terrebonne & w/better access to parking we think. It’s a big venue that keeps expanding & more people.

I live a mile away. I hear every concert from all the hardcore rock shows to the screaming over a country artist. As long as it ends by 10 (and it always does!) then I am happy. I attended multiple shows this year and each one got better and better. Keep the electronic shows coming!

Live 2 miles away and cannot enjoy a night on my deck - or even with the windows open - during this unrestrained noise pollution.

We live in Tillicum Village, at least 2 miles away from the amphitheater. This summer the concerts have literally shook our windows at times. We are music lovers and don’t mind the concerts, but this has been terrible. We think it must be the new stage because it’s never been this way in the past.

The concerts are great while you're there. However, I'm almost 4 miles away and can feel the bass in my house during most of the concerts. It's extremely frustrating when it's not peaceful inside your own home. I believe that a good compromise can be reached and hope that happens for next year.

50 c0ncerts in the middle of town is simply too much. We feel like we have become Disneyland for tourists.

It's too loud. The noise level should be a choice of the residents, not city council.

I live near Kiwanis Park, and the noise from the amphitheater has been excessive all summer long, especially the last 3 or so concerts. It's never been this loud in years prior. The noise from the closer to me Vince Genna stadium isn't even that loud or obnoxious.
