Cellphones create too many distractions. They are the main reason kids are not learning the way they should.

Yes, for the most part. There are a few instances where they should be allowed such as the downloading of apps that help with, say, science classes and so forth. Otherwise, they are a huge distraction.

If the family needs to contact the child in an emergency, they can call the school and the school can relay the message to the child. It worked for me in the 60's and 70's, it can work now too.

Technology is such a major part of our lives that none of us can escape it. It comes with responsibility and accountability which seems to be the hardest part of the equation. No doubt they can be a distraction but safety and convenience play a bigger part in my opinion.

We came to town in 1989 and opened our store the day before Fred Meyer opened. This enabled me to raise a family when Bend was perfect with only 30,000 people. Mt. Bachelor would pick up kids at the elementary school & teach them how to ski. Time have changed & not for the better. We sold and left.

This community enjoys the outdoors and spending time with friends and loved ones so being out and about to cafes, breweries, shops etc, is a perfect way to spend time...and money.

NO! Its only going to create a bigger traffic jam between Newport and 3rd street lights.

The Bend City Council has a pattern of going through the pretense of public input then ignoring it and going with their predetermined decision.
