Maybe less rowdy people and wild kids running around ruining the peace and quiet.

I don't want to plan ahead that much - prefer the spontaneous outings.

so we need a permit to walk in the woods now. What's next?

Your question really needs to address wilderness camping as that activity impacts greatly the wilderness landscape. Day, permits, visits are far less destructive to the Three Sisters Wilderness and easier to obtain.

We already pay taxes on this land and this adds a spontanious barrier to access. Loicals should be able to go and hike anytime anywhere. Permits can be for visitors

It is enforced to preserve the overall wilderness experience to benefit all who recreate and obtain a wild connection to Nature.

Dude, try to hike the Wonderland Trail at MRNP. It is a lottery for dates - good luck.

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.
