I wear a higher rated mask after being vaccinated and boosted to protect from the undereducated anit vaxers, who think their rights for choice outweigh mine for protection from them.

Obviously you are doing everything to protect yourself. I applaud you however 4 friends who were not vaccinated got COVID from fully vaccinated people. Contact with other people should be avoided.

I wear a mask even though I'm vaccinated to protect my family. A family member got covid but I didn't because of how careful we are.

I have never been an agreement with the mask mandate. I think people should be able to choose for themselves if they want to wear a mask or not

I have never believed in mask mandates, so my views have not changed. Wear one if you want, and leave everyone else alone. Wear one around those at high-risk, otherwise they are pointless. How anyone supports mask mandates is beyond me.

My view has always been that masks are useless. If you are sneezing and coughing you shouldn't be out in public. We will all get COVID anyway.

They don't make a bit of a difference. Espeically if you're not sick.

Anyone check their oxygen levels when wearing a mask. Not good. Masks are not helpful but harmful to many. No mask mandate. People should make their own choice if they want to wear one or not.

While I believe Covid is a real thing—my son had and was very very I’ll—I still think masks are useless since everybody keeps getting sick and, this is about power and control not health. Also, this is Kate Brown “best serving” her “revenge cold and slowly”

I've been wearing a mask since April 2020...now I wear a KN95 mask. I am triple vaccinated...have not been sick...no cold, no flu...Masks + Vaccines + social distancing has kept my husband and I well.

If the mask works why do you have to social distance?

Mask do not stop the spread. I use a oxygen sensor every day for work and with the normal paper mask that most wear your oxygen levels inside the mask drop to 16.5 percent. OSHA states anything below 19.5 is unsafe. So according to OSHA any environment having less then 19.5 is considered unhealthy!

It's basic elementary knowledge that masks help protect against respiratory illnesses. Anybody too entitled to wear a mask in public during a pandemic, is only showing their true colors as an ignorant and self absorbed drain on society. Let's Go Darwin! Let's Go Darwin!

Mask wearing helps to prevent the spread of covid and in no way takes away anyone's rights.

This is an issue that has an effect on every commercial development in the whole city. A gas station is a dinosaur and we don’t need any more! The city needs to support walkability, bikability, and connectivity.

SE Bend citizens deserve a micro-community that takes people out of their cars and walking and biking to healthy options for food and services. Another gas station in this area is redundant and downright disrespectful. City council listening to this issue is the right thing to do!!

I have lived in this area of Bend for 20+ years. There are 3 gas stations within 1 mile of this location and we do not want another. I ask the City Council to hear our objections to a gas station at Murphy/Brosterhaus. Listen to the homeowners and citizens and not $$$$. Thank You...

Because it is in direct conflict with the CCAP goals of reducing use of fossil fuel. Allowing a new gasoline station to be built in an established neighborhood with six existing fueling stations nearby does not align with demonstrating leadership in attaining CCAP goals, objectives or goals.

We do NOT want a gas station on Murphy and Brosterhaus. An out of town oil company does not make a good neighbor. Schools, a park, homes and multiple school bus stops shouldn't have to share space with this type of business. Our city should support their voters, not big business.

For transparency. For a more democratic process. 2000 petition signers should not be dismissed in what some might perceive as callow and arrogant.

Outdated city codes need to be addressed by the city.This is an example of how older codes are not acceptable to residents now. Why would a city allow polluting gas stations and businesses that greatly increase traffic in the middle of a residential neighborhood & blocks from an elementary school?

The Hearings Officer ignored city code and shifted the burden opposition. This is bad for Bend as developments will no longer have to comply with code and the city and opponents will have hire experts, conduct studies to prove the development doesn't meet code. this will hurt everyone.

Cities are banning new gas stations. Bend is allowing them in neighborhoods? Why doesn't the city of Bend listen to its residents' concerns in this neighborhood, 85% of whom oppose this gas station and have no problems getting gas 1 1/2 miles away? Residents want a grocery, brewpub, daycare.

City pushing an agenda w/o constituents support or input. City pushing it down the throats of the neighborhood directly affected. Take it slow w/appropriate discourse of the public!
