It's not particularly helpful. The lot names on the signs are too small to read while watching traffic and for pedestrians. The only reason I could read it was that we were stopped for a red light.

I haven't seen them, but it seems like taking time to read them and figure out where they are directing you to would not work unless you are stopped at a red light and have time to figure them out. By the time you might reach where you were directed to the space may be gone. Seems like a waste.

It does not work. It tells you. But until it holds it for you to get there, its pointless.

Very distracting. We should be looking out for pedestrians, other drivers and traffic signals. How are visitors going to know where the Mirror Pond Lot is or the Centennial Garage is?

The system was installed to have a negative effect on downtown patrons so to add to the City Councils long term plan of removing cars from downtown.

It's just a distraction. By the time you get to an open spot it could be gone. We're just staying away from downtown.

I have a business literally across the street from their office/dump location and still get consistently missed on recycling. I have been missed regularly on garbage as well. The city has the ability to pull their contract if this continues.

I live in Crook County. We went a whole month without recycle pick up. The service is always on FB because of inconsistent service. We went two weeks with no garbage pickup. It's like this all over the city as well as out of city limits! VERY FRUSTRATING when you're paying for a service!

LOL. In Crooked River Ranch - we don't know what 'recycling' is. The garbage company totally did away with it. So - I feel no sympathy for some of you who have 'delays'.
