Homeless camps should not be set up in the city, especially not in residential or commercial areas, There should be county or BLM land available on the outskirts of the city, if you drive along China Hat road there are already a lot of homeless people camping out on BLM land.

Have you looked at the plan? It's not going to be tents and grocery carts. It's going to be MANAGED HOUSING with rules and restrictions for pete's sake! Pay attention first. Then form an opinion.

It's a no-brainer to NOT put these camps anywhere near schools! Whoever is considering this should have their head examined.

I live in Culver (97734). All my children are grown. No homeless camps near schools, daycare schools or residential areas, period.

Public safety! That seems like the last place to put it.

There is a lot at 9th and Wilson that could make a good camp. Flat close to medical and mental health services plus near utility hookups and patrol services

No it should not be nears schools and day cares. I agree we need one. Perhaps near community services and churches?

Homeless camps should be outside city limits not near our children.

It shouldn't be anywhere near kiddos. It's just bed planning and I'm sure the homeless people don't want to be in such an observed area, either. Has anyone asked the homeless where they think it should be?

This is bend Oregon it's one entire neighborhood. I'd like you expect the most part of that US citizens are us property. The US government is responsible for every single us person.

What’s the point of putting it further away from town? That cuts off their already-limited availability to food, clean water, medical support, and basic care. Your kids are gonna learn about homelessness one way or another, and our tax dollars will be going to something other than corpse disposal.

What does concern me is biased reporting about this issue. Every story is from the opposition. Why not interview Chuck Hemmingway or Jim Porter, who are board members for Central Oregon Villages? The community gets info from you, you should provide both sides, not just opposition point of view.

Psychologically speaking teens lack the ability to consider consequences prior to making decisions and taking action. This isn't speculation, as there is scientific evidence that support this. Biologically the areas of the brain that are a part of decision making aren't fully developed until later.

If the belief is that adults convicted of violent crimes can be paroled because they won't re-offend, juveniles should also get that chance since they are more likely to change their life path than an adult.

I knew Barb, and to have her beaten by her son while conscious is beyond being eligible for parole . She was so nice and she loved him so much. I do believe some cases should be but not this one
