This is an issue that has an effect on every commercial development in the whole city. A gas station is a dinosaur and we don’t need any more! The city needs to support walkability, bikability, and connectivity.

Bend doesn't need to become Portland. If you want a big town feel, move to a bigger city. I miss Bends small town feel. No more tax funded bike trails. Every street has a bike lane.

Voting FOR clean, walkable, bikeable neighborhood activities the encourage getting out of the car, meeting neighbors for coffee, ice cream, day care for kids from the elementary school nearby just makes sense. City council should listen to the residents who live in the neighborhood & act accordingly

Bend isn't southern California. Paying for walking and bike trails usable for a few months each year isn't a good use of tax dollars.

SE Bend citizens deserve a micro-community that takes people out of their cars and walking and biking to healthy options for food and services. Another gas station in this area is redundant and downright disrespectful. City council listening to this issue is the right thing to do!!

That's the trouble. People think they DESERVE whatever they want. If there are gas stations, big box stores, car lots, grocery stores and marijuana shops in my neighborhood then you should expect them in your neighborhood also. Sound fair and equitable?

I have lived in this area of Bend for 20+ years. There are 3 gas stations within 1 mile of this location and we do not want another. I ask the City Council to hear our objections to a gas station at Murphy/Brosterhaus. Listen to the homeowners and citizens and not $$$$. Thank You...

Because it is in direct conflict with the CCAP goals of reducing use of fossil fuel. Allowing a new gasoline station to be built in an established neighborhood with six existing fueling stations nearby does not align with demonstrating leadership in attaining CCAP goals, objectives or goals.

Boy, that's stretching the argument. It's the typical "not in my neighborhood" mentality. Well, if they can put every conceivable type of business in North East Bend then the rest of Bend needs to get used to it. It's time to spread it around to every area of town.

Outdated city codes need to be addressed by the city.This is an example of how older codes are not acceptable to residents now. Why would a city allow polluting gas stations and businesses that greatly increase traffic in the middle of a residential neighborhood & blocks from an elementary school?

For the same reason it's allowed in east Bend. If a city grows everyone has to feel the pain equally. No more entitlement attitudes.

The Hearings Officer ignored city code and shifted the burden opposition. This is bad for Bend as developments will no longer have to comply with code and the city and opponents will have hire experts, conduct studies to prove the development doesn't meet code. this will hurt everyone.

Cities are banning new gas stations. Bend is allowing them in neighborhoods? Why doesn't the city of Bend listen to its residents' concerns in this neighborhood, 85% of whom oppose this gas station and have no problems getting gas 1 1/2 miles away? Residents want a grocery, brewpub, daycare.

And you all should certainly get every little thing your heart's desire and nothing you don't want. After all everyone moves here for the quality of life right? Do you have any idea how wonderful the quality of life was here thirty years ago? It goes down hill with every new move here. Remember that

City pushing an agenda w/o constituents support or input. City pushing it down the throats of the neighborhood directly affected. Take it slow w/appropriate discourse of the public!

Absolutely. Who do they think they are? They work for us but they choose to ignore that and push their personal agendas on us. Time to boot the liberals as we are quickly turning into Portland under them.

Tie the development to the Reed Market Road bridge at the railroad crossing.

We do NOT want a gas station on Murphy and Brosterhaus. An out of town oil company does not make a good neighbor. Schools, a park, homes and multiple school bus stops shouldn't have to share space with this type of business. Our city should support their voters, not big business.

For transparency. For a more democratic process. 2000 petition signers should not be dismissed in what some might perceive as callow and arrogant.

Live on my street you cry baby. I'm fed up with people moving here and making demands. If you voted for these liberals on the city council or mayor then you're getting what you voted for. We are quickly becoming southern California because some people never learn.

No!

Way to late to worry about traffic, probably little if any increase.
