What is going on? Who took it upon themselves to ruin Christmas for the rest of us. How does Visit Bend like this? How many people visit here each year expecting to go down town for the lights and holiday atmosphere? Lame…. The ironic part is, Bend City is enabling more traffic 🤣.

CoB made a huge mistake with this new parking system. First off, it's impossible to see the sign long enough to figure out where spaces are. And how are visitors supposed to know where the listed parking areas are? We used to be proud of how magical the downtown was but now it looks dull. Boo on CoB

They are pretty sparse, was just down there yesterday and the missing lights were very noticeable, made downtown look cheap and not inviting at all. And have no idea how to use this parking signage - kinda stupid really.

The trees have been butchered. Based on the visual, real world outcomes it was a poor decision making and outreach process at all levels. Plus, the parking signs are distracting at a congested intersection. Policy Decision Grade: F

The Parking Manager shows no respect for Bendites at all, increasing parking fees, taking away the lights, trimming trees, he's a joke who needs to go back to where he came from.

Real tacky. Not worth taking kids to shop & see lights there. If I was shop owner who paid for lights display... I WOULD DEMAND MY MONEY BACK¡ They got ripped, ripped off.

No Twinkling lights, in the grand scheme of things, is pretty small potatoes.

I can’t see why anybody would want to be ruled by modern liberals anymore at this point.

Oregon leadership is destroying our once wonderful state. Drugs, homeless and high taxes, they trying to turn Oregon into another California.

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
