I was a sophomore at culver high school and remember getting ready for school and grabbing my bags. I watched the first tower get hit and I sat there in shock. Then the second tower then at school they announced the pentagon getting hit and another plane going down. Such a sad day for America.

I was waking up in my layover hotel in Denver. As a flight Attendant for American Airlines, after turning on the TV that morning, I spent the next 4 days with other stranded crews, who became family to me during that nightmare. NEVER FORGET~

I was living in Tumalo. Got up and turned on the TV and saw that one of the Towers had been hit. A short while later the second tower was hit. I knew that wasn't an accident. The terrorists are still winning. If you have been through an airport and been terrorized by TSA you know what I mean.

I was on the GW Pky on my way to work on Capitol Hill, when I saw the smoke rising from the Pentagon. I had watched Katie Couric on Today when the 1st plane hit and thought, as she did, that it was an accident. After seeing the smoke at the Pentagon, I turned around and went home knowing it was bad.

We were on vacation in Boise, Idaho. The news caused us to panic and rush home to Arizona.

I was in a high rise building on the 11th floor in downtown Portland. It was an HQ office and they told me HQ also had offices in the Twin Towers buildings, so it hit them hard. The entire building was ordered to evacuated which we did. Pretty clear in my memory.

Getting ready for work, watching the Today show. Pretty solemn day at work. When I first saw it, I thought it was some sightseer miscalculating their path. If only . . .

I was living in the Philippines. We were watching the news and saw the towers struck. We were horrified and alarmed, but watched the TV for the better part of the next 6 or 8 hours. As members of the US Embassy community, we were also concerned about potential attacks in Manila.

I am a flight attendant for American Airlines, I have been flying for 30 years. I used to work flight #11 (BOS-LAX) for 2 years, 2-3 times a week just before 9/11, hits very close to home. RIP flight crews, they suffered before the world knew what was happening. Never forget...be kind to each other

We were in the KOA campground in Whitefish MT on the first day of a planned vacation in Alberta and British Columbia in Canada. Since the border was immediately closed we spent the week camping in Montana.

Living in Beaverton, getting ready for work. Watching the morning news when the report of the first tower being hit by a plane came on. Yelled to my wife what was happening... Then had to tell her that the country was under attack by an unknown enemy after I saw the video of the second plane hitting

AI is dangerous, very vulnerable to Misinformation and just spitting it back out. AI is NOT creative, real writers are creative. AI just re-arranges the factoids available to it. Teachers are alarmed that papers submitted by students might not be their work, just ChatGTP garbage.

This is an issue that has an effect on every commercial development in the whole city. A gas station is a dinosaur and we don’t need any more! The city needs to support walkability, bikability, and connectivity.

Voting FOR clean, walkable, bikeable neighborhood activities the encourage getting out of the car, meeting neighbors for coffee, ice cream, day care for kids from the elementary school nearby just makes sense. City council should listen to the residents who live in the neighborhood & act accordingly

SE Bend citizens deserve a micro-community that takes people out of their cars and walking and biking to healthy options for food and services. Another gas station in this area is redundant and downright disrespectful. City council listening to this issue is the right thing to do!!

I have lived in this area of Bend for 20+ years. There are 3 gas stations within 1 mile of this location and we do not want another. I ask the City Council to hear our objections to a gas station at Murphy/Brosterhaus. Listen to the homeowners and citizens and not $$$$. Thank You...

Because it is in direct conflict with the CCAP goals of reducing use of fossil fuel. Allowing a new gasoline station to be built in an established neighborhood with six existing fueling stations nearby does not align with demonstrating leadership in attaining CCAP goals, objectives or goals.

We do NOT want a gas station on Murphy and Brosterhaus. An out of town oil company does not make a good neighbor. Schools, a park, homes and multiple school bus stops shouldn't have to share space with this type of business. Our city should support their voters, not big business.

For transparency. For a more democratic process. 2000 petition signers should not be dismissed in what some might perceive as callow and arrogant.

Outdated city codes need to be addressed by the city.This is an example of how older codes are not acceptable to residents now. Why would a city allow polluting gas stations and businesses that greatly increase traffic in the middle of a residential neighborhood & blocks from an elementary school?

The Hearings Officer ignored city code and shifted the burden opposition. This is bad for Bend as developments will no longer have to comply with code and the city and opponents will have hire experts, conduct studies to prove the development doesn't meet code. this will hurt everyone.

Cities are banning new gas stations. Bend is allowing them in neighborhoods? Why doesn't the city of Bend listen to its residents' concerns in this neighborhood, 85% of whom oppose this gas station and have no problems getting gas 1 1/2 miles away? Residents want a grocery, brewpub, daycare.

Were you just kidding about all of your lofty "goals". Or, did the "contributions" from the developers persuade you to look the other way?

City pushing an agenda w/o constituents support or input. City pushing it down the throats of the neighborhood directly affected. Take it slow w/appropriate discourse of the public!

Way to late to worry about traffic, probably little if any increase.
