Too much local history is just bulldozed and forgotten. Historic sites need more protection!

Bend and Redmond's history is being buried under mountains of apartments being constructed.

They are more interested in tearing down or tearing up history than preserving it.

Things get torn down (some in the middle of the night) for more lousy tourist attractions or for more coffee shops or fast food places.

They could do more. Place signs on historic spots.

Not even remotely. Bulldozed the Old Mill to build a shopping center. The Nels and Lillian Anderson house/homestead. Etc.

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

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

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