It would limit residence and spur of the moment use. One of the perks of living here is the easy access to trails, lakes, etc. Maybe require limits only on weekends or major holidays.

Because locals deserve first chance at access. Give locals a week to apply first then open it up to outsiders.

The tourist and new comers seem to be the ones trashing the place. The trails were not like this during the first few years I lived here (12 - 15/16).

Of course CO residents should be exempt. I didn't move here 42 years ago to be told I have to stand in line to hike on a trail in my backyard!

Make it a percentage CO residents and percentage tourists.

Whether running tourists or livestock, every piece of real estate has a carrying capacity. There is an upper limit in the matter of the number of head one can put out on the range.

Everyone should be held to the same standard. We all have a responsibility to limit our impact on the environment.

Just because someone lives here doesn't mean they are less destructive.

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.

Starting a business in this economy is not a good idea, once trump is president again it will be better

Guess you haven't seen what Trump plans to do with your SS disability, you won't be able to afford a dog walker anymore.

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.
