Deschutes County has enough of these resorts using up natural resources. They don't help our housing shortage. These houses are second and third vacation homes for non-residents who benefit from tax breaks.

Wyman Yes. These "Resort Communities" become nothing more than a 2nd home refuge for wealthy out-of-state residents. Their wealth adds little to the local economy, other than higher home prices for county residents. As they say in South County - "Don't Bend La Pine".

Central Oregon is running out of water. Houses should be for full time residents not wealthy vacation rentals and second vacation homes.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
