We rescued our dog from the Madras Humane Society. Best dog ever.

We rescued both of our dogs. Our boy was found in Southern Oregon in the middle of a busy highway in a box with his brother as puppies. Our girl was being fostered after being rescued from a bad home.

My dog was adopted from Central Oregon Humane Society in 2005. I'll always adopt.

I always prefer to save a life by adopting from a shelter. Please don't breed or buy while shelter pets die.

I think we need to adopt our own animals here in USA. Cant believe there are well meaning individuals bringing in more unwanted animals into USA from out of country though!!!

Adopt from US or world-you save a life either way-Why put down someone who is doing a good thing while taking a world view.

I've got 1 of each. The oldest is the pedigree, so I will likely replace her with another just like her. My youngest is from a SoCal kill shelter and is a llasa apso/poodle mix. Both are so precious!

3-4 million dogs & cats in the U.S. are euthanized each year because there aren't enough homes. I have and always will adopt. My 3 dogs are all rescues and they are the best!

Have always adopted for the last 35+ years and have always been more than satisfied with the results. Always Chows which have a bad reputation and never was disappointed after initial intro and train

I’ve done both. Had good dogs both ways. I have purebreds now, but I did look at adopting first.

3 of our 4 dogs are adopted, but my youngest is from a breeder. I wanted a specific breed, with a good prey drive for rodents and got one from Texas. I waited a long time to find just the right dog.

AI is dangerous, very vulnerable to Misinformation and just spitting it back out. AI is NOT creative, real writers are creative. AI just re-arranges the factoids available to it. Teachers are alarmed that papers submitted by students might not be their work, just ChatGTP garbage.

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.

Voting FOR clean, walkable, bikeable neighborhood activities the encourage getting out of the car, meeting neighbors for coffee, ice cream, day care for kids from the elementary school nearby just makes sense. City council should listen to the residents who live in the neighborhood & act accordingly

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.

Were you just kidding about all of your lofty "goals". Or, did the "contributions" from the developers persuade you to look the other way?

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!

Way to late to worry about traffic, probably little if any increase.
