Everyone deserves to have a place to live. A set location could create a sense of community amongst people who are homeless. A location near a bus line will help with transportation to/from jobs.

I agree. Siting a homeless shelter or two. on the Westside of Bend would be optimal. Plenty of resources available, access to higher learning, low crime rate, yes, a win-win for the community!

You bet, even the Homeless need a place to go for awhile. BUT, there has to be guidelines. They can't just run wild like animals. Truly deserving people must be held accountable. In turn be given the tools and a way out through support. I'm a homeowner and I would help where I can.

Because homelessness will never completely go away. There will always be some person or family in crises . The old KOA is the ideal site as water , sewer, and electri is fairly accessible.

A better location would be on the west side. The convenience of services near there was apparently why the college was located there. Near Phil’s trail or NW Crossing would be perfect.

The homeless living amongst the snooty Westsiders is a splendid idea! Surely, the Westside residents wouldn't have a problem with this since they are all for inclusion. Bridges, not walls remember?

Because people will come from other places/states when word gets around that they can live for free. Other cities have tried this same plan and it's been a disaster!!

Needs to be outside the urban areas, probably East of Bend is the most fitting!

Siting a "temporary" homeless camp of this size, near two public schools and a park is NOT a good idea. What business in their right mind would look at property in Juniper Ridge with this nearby?

No. Enabling drug addicts and the alcohol adducted to live on our streets and neighborhoods is criminal. They need to be housed in a treatment facility.

Move them outside the city limits. Use abandoned buildings or have inmates build temp structures. They need shelter, but they don't need to be near residential homes, parks, or schools.

Avoiding more deaths makes these questions simply silly. Those that resist vaccine & masks are the weak minded being culled from the herd.

No. Because those who do will and those who dont want to won't. People are tired of being owned.

We are done with masks. I'm vaccinated, and anyone else can get vaccinated. Now it is time to get to herd immunity. If you want to wear a mask, knock yourself out.

I no longer go downtown to shop because parking has been too difficult for me to find without walking several blocks to the store I want to go to.

I have lived in Bend for over 50 years and until this summer have totally supported the down town business. Now I go to the shopping centers and also use Amazon. I don't like this but have no choice until downtown business forces the city to find an answer to this. Maybe downtown should be for the

I'm disabled, so parking in the public garage is too far for me to walk sometimes with my heart condition. More disabled parking would be nice downtown by the store fronts.

I avoid going to Bend as much as possible. I don't like anything about being in any big city. As for parking there, I only go to medical facilities and sometimes the Northside malls, so parking is generally not an issue. Driving in Bend is much worse than finding parking in Bend.

The only time I have trouble finding a parking spot is when someone without disabled plates or a hanger decides to park in a disabled zone.
