Make people responsible for their actions. Why do parks have signs warning us not to feed animals. Same with humans. Are they receiving aid so they can live off the public? Will we be like SF and let them steal up to $1000 without penalty.

The problem is not going to go away and most likely only get worse, so viable solutions is what we must do to keep Bend beautiful for us all including those less fortunate.

Solutions are NOT wild camping or tent camps in the city, managed or not but treatment centers for drug and mental issues!!!

The “homeless” need to be screened so that the people that want and need help will get it. The people that “choose” to be homeless as a way of life and the evil doers need to leave town.

Psychiatric counseling, drug counseling and employment counseling. God helps those who help themselves. If they will help themselves, we are all there for them.

Believe both city and county commissioners have made it too easy for homeless to settle here. They need to take the city owned land in Juniper Ridge area and build the camps they’re wanting to put in neighborhood there. This is a problem they’ve created so let them use their land to fix it.

Need to put some focus on root cause.130 person increase over last year with all the covid money and eviction moritoriums. What will the increase be when those programs are history?

We need to follow the Utah model. Such camps, whether "managed" or not, should never be put near established neighborhoods or schools. They drag down property values and create danger for school kids. There is plenty of land in CO in which to place these camps where they won't infringe on anyone.

Would a conservative state government be the solution?

Ask this question in conversation!.......Why is it that having a slovenly-slipshod-dirty lifestyle reflection a prerequisite for most all homeless and their camps?

it is always hard to anticipate future growth. However, Bend has a pro growth policy and Visit Bend which actively tries to get everyone to move here. It should come as no surprise that transportation lags far behind the aggressive marketing of this town.
