The housing crisis is critical here. Yet Bend continues to not realize the issue at hand and continues to support the "Not in my backyard" attitude.

Lots of room on all sides of Bend. You just have to be willing to expand some. But no matter where they are built, many lane roads need to me made 4 lanes.

The westside of Bend needs to share in owning the housing growth / needs that the city is experiencing - rather than continuing to burden primarily the east side.

The traffic infrastructure on the west side can not handle any more. Affordable multi-family housing (only) would be welcome once the City gets caught up.

Traffic is already bad enough without high-density housing exascerbating the issue.

There is way too much traffic on the west side of town. A developers fee of $60,000 won't do very much to relieve the residents and visitors traffic woes. Unsafe for residents, first responders and t

Now that we are expanding the UGB; we should build them on the eastside. The Westside can't handle the traffic; especially if there's a fire.

We came to town in 1989 and opened our store the day before Fred Meyer opened. This enabled me to raise a family when Bend was perfect with only 30,000 people. Mt. Bachelor would pick up kids at the elementary school & teach them how to ski. Time have changed & not for the better. We sold and left.

This community enjoys the outdoors and spending time with friends and loved ones so being out and about to cafes, breweries, shops etc, is a perfect way to spend time...and money.

NO! Its only going to create a bigger traffic jam between Newport and 3rd street lights.

The Bend City Council has a pattern of going through the pretense of public input then ignoring it and going with their predetermined decision.
