Is this a solution or just a band aid? Seems like only a band aid; solves nothing, just kicks the can down the road...

These kind of liberal policies bring criminals drug addicts in the mentally ill and communities were taxpayers work hard to keep their family safe. . A poster child would be Portland, and they wanna turn Bend into Portland.. . The Safe Parking program will put them all over Deschutes county!!!

Homeless issue will not be solved by throwing more money and services at them, while expecting hard working taxpayers to foot the bill.

The site is too close to the highway and presents a safety hazard to those who don't have a vehicle. A safer location should be used.

No, and he'll no. This town cares more about the bums,junkies, spotted frog and developers then they do there own residence. And the special people on the west side of town.

Absolutely not. This location will be the first thing you see when exiting Hiway 97 entering our town. All the local businesses are rightly concerned. Many will remember prior to the Parkway being built there was a large manicured landscape with the word Bend trimmed into the landscape. That's gone.

Certainly not without 24/7 on-site management/security. I understand that we need something and overall, I don't think this is a terrible idea. However, 24/7 security is essential to the safety of both the houseless, and the rest of the community.

There is no security being provided. We all saw the theft and crime issues generated by the illegal encampment on Hunnel Rd. It's past time we enforce our vagrants laws. Studies show most of these "campers" are there by choice.

Camps shouldn't be supported or allowed in city limits.

Seriously, if the city creates more opportunities for "free squatting", more will certainly come along with more substance abuse, trash, crime, etc...

Invest in facilities not tent cities. Address mental health and stop enabling.

I'm from bend, born and raised.. I've got really mixed feelings on this! I know the homeless are a huge factor in Bend and while I dont really agree to setting up a community for them to live south of town... I also don't agree with the outrageous home and rental prices....

You can't help those who don't want to help themselves. Stop catering and wiping there butts. All they want to do is live like a pig and be stoned all day. Idiots in charge of Oregon legalize all these drugs and wonder why we have these issues. Sick of my tax money used to clean up after everyone.

Why not the west side? Or how about keeping them where they are now? They have already destroyed the area and we don't have in our backyards. Look at all of the problems they have caused out on Hummel road and you think we want this in our community and to live with the garbage and drugs they bring!

Why do my hard earned tax dollars need to pay for people who choose to be addicted to drugs and alcohol and NOT work?? It straight up pisses me off. The more we give them, the bigger the homeless population grows! Figure that out democrats

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
