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.

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.

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.

I agree with locating them outside urban areas.

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.

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'.
