I'm not against art in any way at all. I just think there are greater needs than eye candy right now.

Not happy with most of the weird artwork that I wouldn't call artwork, but I DO like the metal trees over by Murphy and 97 by Walmart. Esp. when the wind blows, very pretty. And those metal deer sculptures are pretty (forgot where they are) but most of the sculptures I wouldn't call art.

This non-sensical “art” is a long standing game plan of communism. Just google “communist goals 1963” and you can read about it.

It may be pretty to some but I believe the money for that artwork and to put it into place could be better used elsewhere in the city's budget

Don’t see why it matters, should be focused on the road and idiots who don’t know how to use them…not the art work

Have no idea what some of them mean if anything and think funds could be put to better use.

This is an issue that has an effect on every commercial development in the whole city. A gas station is a dinosaur and we don’t need any more! The city needs to support walkability, bikability, and connectivity.

SE Bend citizens deserve a micro-community that takes people out of their cars and walking and biking to healthy options for food and services. Another gas station in this area is redundant and downright disrespectful. City council listening to this issue is the right thing to do!!

I have lived in this area of Bend for 20+ years. There are 3 gas stations within 1 mile of this location and we do not want another. I ask the City Council to hear our objections to a gas station at Murphy/Brosterhaus. Listen to the homeowners and citizens and not $$$$. Thank You...

Because it is in direct conflict with the CCAP goals of reducing use of fossil fuel. Allowing a new gasoline station to be built in an established neighborhood with six existing fueling stations nearby does not align with demonstrating leadership in attaining CCAP goals, objectives or goals.

We do NOT want a gas station on Murphy and Brosterhaus. An out of town oil company does not make a good neighbor. Schools, a park, homes and multiple school bus stops shouldn't have to share space with this type of business. Our city should support their voters, not big business.

For transparency. For a more democratic process. 2000 petition signers should not be dismissed in what some might perceive as callow and arrogant.

Outdated city codes need to be addressed by the city.This is an example of how older codes are not acceptable to residents now. Why would a city allow polluting gas stations and businesses that greatly increase traffic in the middle of a residential neighborhood & blocks from an elementary school?

The Hearings Officer ignored city code and shifted the burden opposition. This is bad for Bend as developments will no longer have to comply with code and the city and opponents will have hire experts, conduct studies to prove the development doesn't meet code. this will hurt everyone.

Cities are banning new gas stations. Bend is allowing them in neighborhoods? Why doesn't the city of Bend listen to its residents' concerns in this neighborhood, 85% of whom oppose this gas station and have no problems getting gas 1 1/2 miles away? Residents want a grocery, brewpub, daycare.

Were you just kidding about all of your lofty "goals". Or, did the "contributions" from the developers persuade you to look the other way?

City pushing an agenda w/o constituents support or input. City pushing it down the throats of the neighborhood directly affected. Take it slow w/appropriate discourse of the public!

Way to late to worry about traffic, probably little if any increase.

Don't know that proper nouns are capitalized? Don't know how to punctuate? He has "a" article? Thanks for the homeschool perspective on graduation.
