Excellent idea , if you look at European cities that have restaurants with outdoor dining they bring a sense of community and freindlyness to the area , they have a way of allowing people to slow down take their time and have fun .

How about let's just open up the state and start living again. This question is just a distraction from the real issue.

Bend always needs more parking spots, but we don't waste our money on eating out so don't really care.

I don't see the point of this, it's still indoors

Because we need more parking and the tents do not enhance the look, openness and walk-ability of our downtown.

As much as I am all for outside dining, there has to be a balance between outdoor dining vs. parking spaces. Much parking has already been absorbed into dining already. Many people don't want to or can't walk great distances just to dine. We need to preserve parking!

It was a much needed creative way to help businesses during the height of the pandemic during a time they could not seat inside. They do not need to take the VERY limited parking downtown now that they can seat inside!

Because those parking spots are necessary for downtown business. Without customers, there is no business and Bend is so spread out, cars are required. I know Bend wants to eliminate vehicles, but that is not at all logical or possible.

It's fine to extend it a bit due to the pandemic, but we're already short on downtown parking and it's nice to be able to walk on the sidewalk.

It’s not the prices of fuel, it’s the bozo in the White House causing all of the chaos facing our nation. I wish our media outlets actually covered the real news instead boosting this post turtle even further. Nobody knows how the turtle got on the post but somebody put him there. We’re all F$&ked.

Not me but I am retired, but I know it is a hardship on many people. It is because of the horrible Trojan horse for socialism (he is a bad joke) This so called administration and its war on oil has caused all!!! Lets all thank the Biden administration for screwing America over! LETS GO BRANDON!!!!

My wife, who is a CMA, quit rather than get the biologic agent jab.

Very experienced mentor left their jobs in the fire service and nursing. They already had natural immunity, which made the vaccine pointless.

Glad my son in law decided to get vaccinated. I dont want to be around unvaccinated "health care" workers. Neither do I want to be around unvaccinated police and fire who I pay to serve and "protect". Glad, too, that teachers and staff are required to be vaccinated.

No I don't, however, I don't believe anyone should need a mandate to do the right thing. Through the years Americans have come together when needed to bring the country through events like this. Those that continue to cause deaths, shorthanded medical services and tumbling stock market for what?

I do not know anyone personally affected, but in a way we are all affected! I am vaccinated and I think it is the best way to get the horrible Democrats socialist control freaks off our backs, but it is NOT the American way to be forced into something! We have got to get rid of the Biden and Brown!

I voted(?) this way because ... I don't know anyone affected by the mandate. But I don't understand people's resistance to this. Consider mandates we all accept without complaint: stop signs, seat belts, motorcycle helmets. Come on, people. Get the shot, Keep yourself and the rest of us healthy.

I know several people that have had strokes and other serious side effects from this vaccine, people get the jab before researching it
