Success so far in Bend with Veterans Village, Lighthouse, safe parking program, St. Vincent dePaul. More expected with Central Oregon Villages 27th St. facility and Rainbow Motel. Still more needs to be done, of course. But that's a promising start. This is a national humanitarian crisis.

I see the movement of groups and the numbers are manageable. Things can be improved by having no tolerance for illegal drug abuse. The young drug addicted should be put into forced programs to recover. Mentally ill need to be institutionalized if they cannot care for themselves. Economic get help

Sadly, republicans won't put one cent towards social programs. The GOP loves to control their masses by keeping them uneducated and poor.

Guess I'm not the only one who answers NO, 97% does! Did you get that Bend city council? YOU and your buddies in Salem are ENABLING HOMELESSNESS and making Bend the Premier Homeless & Fentanyl Resort in the country.

California and many other states offer nothing. So the more Oregon offers them, the more of these out of state homeless will be drawn here.

more homeless people seem to be a symptom of a larger problem

Mary Rose Place is the latest Bend Street being taken over by the homeless, with more derelict RVs and mounting garbage. How many more streets will the City donate to the homeless? Progress? The exact opposite!!!!

If you build it they will come! Seems like Bend is trying to become the Portland of Central Oregon.

Throwing good money after bad will not solve the problem. Until drugs are a criminal offence, people are held accountable and free services are stopped, problem will just become worse.

That is absolutely untrue. And as a man of God and Jesus, instead of acting holier than thou, get off your butt and do something to help them.

Did you know that there are more empty, perfectly good, houses in this country than there are homeless people?

Do you think these new rules will help reduce e-bike accidents?

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.

I have a business literally across the street from their office/dump location and still get consistently missed on recycling. I have been missed regularly on garbage as well. The city has the ability to pull their contract if this continues.

I live in Crook County. We went a whole month without recycle pick up. The service is always on FB because of inconsistent service. We went two weeks with no garbage pickup. It's like this all over the city as well as out of city limits! VERY FRUSTRATING when you're paying for a service!

LOL. In Crooked River Ranch - we don't know what 'recycling' is. The garbage company totally did away with it. So - I feel no sympathy for some of you who have 'delays'.
