Parking is necessary for businesses to survive. Monies should be spent on the needs of the majority of people.

The majority of people drive. It doesn't make sense to spend a disproportionate amount of money on something used by a very small portion of the population.

Completely agree. We are seeing way to much increase in spending. No more roundabouts, no more parks, no more spending. The economy is bad and people are paying much higher prices for everything but still our local government is spending.

We aren't Portland and we don't want to be Portland. Stop wasting our money on a very small percentage of the populace. Bend is growing way to fast and parking for cars is needed.

I quit going to downtown Bend because the parking is a disaster. Not building parking will NOT decrease vehicle travel it only creates congestion and traffic stress. I have no problem with bike lanes just the spandex nazis that use them.

I believe increasing parking will cause higher demand because it is move available, improving alternatives will generate demand for those instead and lessen the parking issue.

We purchased E-Bikes, we use them to commute to work, medical appointments go shopping and most other locL travel needs. The biggest drawback(s) are lack of safe places to park them.

its nice you can afford an expensive e bike when most of the population has to cut back to 1 or 2 meals a day so they can afford rent.

Do you think these new rules will help reduce e-bike accidents?

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'.
