In the country away from home owners, farms, businesses. Unless this facility is strickly monitored there will be trash and drugs everywhere. Make a homeless city. With garbage. Water, shower and sewer services and let them go. Daily shuttle might be a good idea.

Yes, Ben Hargis: Away from residential areas churches, schools. NO ONE wants that in their back yard. I realize there needs to be managed camps for homeless people, and I hope some of the planned tiny-house-villages (away from established n'hoods) can provide for them on vast empty land in Redmond.

All in favor of helping. Fine line between helping and enabling. If you build it they will come

If the rent and housing situation would become more affordable for the people who work here, maybe then the people living in their cars or tents that have a job will be able to get back into a place of their own and off the street. As for the rest? Why keep giving them incentives?

I believe in a hand up, not a hand out. I believe permanent state/local government sponsored camp(s) enable bad decisions and bad behavior. Limited time for assistance motivates change. Everyone needs a hand up sometimes.

We must address addiction and mental illness, otherwise the problem will just continue to grow!

The more you do for the homeless the more homeless there are. The more homeless there are, the more they do. Do you you see a pattern? The vast percentage of the homeless population is a chosen lifestyle. If you cut off all services the homeless get there would little to no homeless.

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'.
