It is a good idea as long as they are not allowed to be vacation rentals.

But they need to be affordable. Like lower income housing that's not run down.

Unless we want to continue urban sprawl forever, this is a necessary change. Anything that supports a build up not out approach is a good idea for the future and longevity of this city.

We are ruining the quality of life many moved here for. It is Not healthy to pack more and more people closer and closer together.

People have paid to be in the type of neighborhood they're in and don't want to have multi-unit housing mixed in.

Deschutes turned Blue in the last presidential election. Bend is getting what it voted for. You'll just need to get used to it.

Developers should not be allowed to build in residential neighborhoods if they aren't providing adequate parking. Lower income housing has more adults with vehicles living in tighter quarters.

Resources are more than just a room to live in. What about electricity, water ......

We barely manage the water resources correctly that we do have, those who have water rights have to WASTE water on fallow fields in order to keep their rights, and all the golf courses sucking endless water, unmanaged forests burning, spotted tree frogs draining reservoirs..No

No! If the Chamber of Commerce (or whomever) would quit advertising Bend, people might stop coming here and trying to move here! Bend is getting overrun. Building these types of housing near single family homes brings down those values. It also invites more noise, more traffic, more negatives.

Not what homeowners planned when originally purchasing a home. This is a ridiculous plan that will impact many residents who chose a specific location based on the zoning. I will fight anyone trying to put a duplex or two story etc... next to my home.

Adding multiplexes is fine. But not on lots designed for single family homes.

Students should behave with more maturity, have respect for other's property, at 17 or 18, they should know RIGHT from WRONG. I feel sorry for the other students' loss of celebration for their accomplishments because of the few individual's lack of common sense and respect...

The punishment of cancelling the events for the rest of the school was punitive and Orwellien. This collective punishment is reminiscent of the PRC or the CCP not the USA. Shame!

Should of not punished all students, 20 kids should pay for the senior BBQ and not be allowed to show. I do agree with lowering the charge from a felony.

These kids couldn't celebrate 8th grade promotion because of Covid, now they missed out on another normal tradition like the assembly to recognize the hard work of a majority of students. Bend Lapine prides itself of equity of all students yet the life skills kids didn't get that equity.

How dare poeple not give a damn about kids. When I was a kid you would get cited or arrested for indecent exposure. Enough with this lunacy way of thinking, other people besides naked people have rights too you all.

I support self expression, but public nudity could create opportunities for perverts to harm others. I am especially concerned about children walking around nude with strangers nearby.

The word indecent is self explanatory! It's there for a reason and no one wants to see other peoples private parts! Keep it behind closed doors in your PRIVATE HOMES!

we were born without clothes as long as the person that is naked is not acting in a sexual way or being obscene about it then is should not be criminalized. It is an expression of one's self and should be protected under 1A

As long as they are not engaging in immoral activities then they should be able to wear what they want, even if they don't want to wear anything. I do believe that even a first time event of anything sexual in public should involve a serious sentence. Rights shouldn't be revoked because of feelings

Very few people look better without clothes, and I don't want to see it. However, based on history and human behavior, there is no better way to make it popular than to make it illegal. Alcohol prohibition and banning assault rifles are good examples.

As usual, people who most vocally proclaim their own freedoms are the first to object to freedom for others.
