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 .

It is too soon to cuddle up to strangers in a crowded restaurant or bar

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.

Much better option than letting people roll around on the streets self-medicating with weed and malt liquor. It will all be done in a safe clinical setting, not like you can buy it 7-Eleven at 2 am.

I believe it to be of very beneficial help to people at suffering from PTSD and other illnesses
