Yes, especially businesses. Pathetic to see all the parking lots plowed and spotless while pedestrians have to walk right in the street on 27th. (But not surprised to see all the "No" votes from the worthless local homeowners.)

Sometimes you have to CLIMB OVER MOUNTAINS OF SNOW HARD SNOW TOO

If you can afford to own a home in Bend, you can afford to have someone clear your sidewalk a couple of times a year! Or else shut up and pay the fine.

That sounds par for the course. The city doesn't have to plow the roads as needed, but people have to shovel sidewalks that don't belong to them!

Absolutely NOT!! It may be risky for ppl to shovel their residential sidewalks. Businesses, yes, but not for residential sidewalks.

Not concerned about pedestrians as much as I am about my back and my safety trying to clear it. If people choose to get out and walk in that much snow, the onus is on them to be careful where they walk.

Risky to shovel? What about the risk to pedestrians?

Then pay a kid to do it if you're old or just lazy. It's the law. It's not optional!!!

Businesses yes, they need the business and they have the resources, of course they should do snow removal! Home owners absolutely not, you dont know their physical health or available resources, that is government over reach, typical of the controlling left!

Expecting people to shovel 50 feet or more of snow from a sidewalk in addition to their own driveway is to much. Health and finance doesn't allow for it.

It has nothing to do with right or left. It's common human decency so pedestrians can move around safely -- children going to school, the elderly or disabled who depend on public transit. It's not about your worthless, lazy, ignorant Fox-watching a$$ as usual.

Right or Left? Nonsense. Being able to safely walk to the mailbox is something that all should be entitled to.

This ecosystem is as dependent on fire as it is on rain.
