We are losing too many large trees in Bend. Among other things, they are a carbon sink. We can't afford to lose them.

Climate change is nothing to worry about

Just look at the RV park clear cut along Murphy Road and the Parkway overpass! Massive, stripping the land of mature Ponderosa Pines - totally not good! Wasn't Bend once proclaimed a "Tree City USA" resource? NOT.

The "New Bend" is in the pocket of the big developers, which includes allowing them to clear-cut huge areas of land while Bend pretends to be a "tree city". Look at the older developments, and you'll see how trees used to be saved. Builders need to work around the trees instead of destroying them.

For starters I like trees more than houses. And developers have gotten away with murder just clearing whole lots of every little bit of vegetation. Bend is losing a lot of charm and it gets worse every day.

Bend let the car wash on Reed Lane remove a beautiful tree! For a car wash! With no need! That area is empty and has little landscaping.

The government shouldn't control us

Yet you constantly say how the government should control women, LGBTQ+ communities, anyone that isn't a cis white male. You are a Nazi, Gabe. Just calling a spade a spade. And climate change is real, boo-boo. Your bishop must be mortified at your constant ignorance.

Bend is a densely forested area. You can’t build much larger than a shed without clearing tree. Why should the City be able to tell me what I can do with the trees on my property? Welcome to the Peoples Republic of Bend.

You should definitely move to an area where there's more simple-minded folks like yourself to hang with.

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

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.

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'.
