If nothing else we need to make a huge effort to slow traffic down to about 45 MPH at China Hat Rd. If there is no funding for a pedestrian overpass add several warning lights indicating congestion.

Do you think a persons life is important? How many have to die or be injured before you give the crossing higher importance?

Yes it is extremely important, lives should be very important. Roundabouts are not a necessity, pedestrians safety over a major highway should be first before another stupid roundabout!

HIGH Traffic makes it a manditory pedestrian safety issue.

The speed limit should be 55 and there should be NO STOPLIGHTS!!! What's the point of a bypass if you have to stop. Again, a little common sense!

I assume it would cost millions of $ and people will still cross in areas they shouldn't. Why are there sidewalks along the Parkway? Remove the sidewalks and fence it like they do along major highways or accept the fact that people will still cross it and die.

Don't cross the Parkway where there is no crosswalk. It is for vehicles. Crossing the Parkway will result in a thinning of the herd. For all of you atheists out there it is called "survival of the fittest".

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.
