I no longer go downtown to shop because parking has been too difficult for me to find without walking several blocks to the store I want to go to.

Never any parking.........ever! I don't spend my money there anymore and neither do a vast number of my friends and acquaintances. Shopping needs to be enjoyable.......not there for quite sometime.

I have lived in Bend for over 50 years and until this summer have totally supported the down town business. Now I go to the shopping centers and also use Amazon. I don't like this but have no choice until downtown business forces the city to find an answer to this. Maybe downtown should be for the

I'm disabled, so parking in the public garage is too far for me to walk sometimes with my heart condition. More disabled parking would be nice downtown by the store fronts.

Seriously, this shouldn't even be an concern in the 4th largest city in the state. We have bicycles and transit for a reason. Parking is irrelevant for those of us who ride buses or bikes. If you want lots of free parking and car dependency, please move to Burns or to John Day. It's 2021, not 1961.

I avoid going to Bend as much as possible. I don't like anything about being in any big city. As for parking there, I only go to medical facilities and sometimes the Northside malls, so parking is generally not an issue. Driving in Bend is much worse than finding parking in Bend.

The only time I have trouble finding a parking spot is when someone without disabled plates or a hanger decides to park in a disabled zone.

No, I never have trouble finding parking in downtown Bend because I never go to downtown Bend.

it is always hard to anticipate future growth. However, Bend has a pro growth policy and Visit Bend which actively tries to get everyone to move here. It should come as no surprise that transportation lags far behind the aggressive marketing of this town.
