Sure, if social services are also on-site. Substance abuse treatment, mental health etc. I've seen shelters be effective when combination of these services in one location.

Why not? They need temporary placement and it's conveniently located. It's about time!

I didn't know the numbers of Bendites that are homeless until Carolyn E. said that on the news. Was that over 70% !!?

Quit enabling. Stop providing handouts to individuals who can work! The people who are provided shelter should have to be held to pick up their trash and find a job within a short time and get our. This is obnoxious anymore. Spineless enablers

We don't need to be drawing in more homeless people. We already have enough as it is.

No, There are empty buildings they could put the homeless in. Make the hotel for families low income or as a women's shelter.

Do you think it would stop here? When it's full what are you going to do next? But Hey! You did something! This is NOT dealing with the problem no matter how warm your virtue signaling little heart gets.

No because Bend needs actual long term rental housing for homeless & low income families who have a hard time qualifying for a rental. I have lived here all of my 57 yrs and I can safely say that City of Bend could care less about people/families in need.

This isn't solving anything long term. Why are they their? Lack of affordable housing, drug rehab, or job training? These would be better areas to address, Clean up the garbage camps intown as well. When did that become ok?

Why stop at a motel complex or two? Let's consider residential developments making accommodation to all who cry foul..........'cause that's what it'll take once the word gets out. There's enough tax payers here in CO to divy up for the cost it'll incur, don't you know!!

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

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