Both E-Bikes and Pedal Bikes need more control by Bend Police. Start issuing tickets instead of Warnings to violators and impound bikes for repeat offenders.

Their should not be any bikes allowed on and roadway that does not have a designated bike lane or at least some shoulder space! It is dangerous irritating, problematic and they should not have any right, they dont pay any road tax, gas taxes, nothing! Totailly backwards!

Yes. I bike but have seen a trend in riders ignoring traffic laws and safety rules. More & more the "elitist" mentality of riders, who seem to think laws don't apply to them. This is being exasperated w/new riders jumping into the e-bike craze!

It's up to the parents to tell their kids what the rules are. If the parents don't know then they should look it up. I see kids riding their bikes on the side walks all the time. Doesn't make it right.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
