Expanding the pedestrian zone into Minnisota only removes a handful of parking spots downtown. Not enough to make a difference in parking. As well as, it is only a block so customers of those businesses will be fine walking a block (most likely they would have had to park more than a block away.

A city I lived most of my life in did what Bend is considering. It destroyed the downtown. Parking went from bad to worse. Panhandlers took it over. Businesses left because the customers left. After decades of decay the last I heard they were considering making it a roadway again.

There is not enough parking downtown to begin with

There's not enough parking downtown as it is. Because of that I avoid the area. If these pedestrian things are put in, I'll never go there again. Too big a hassle for the paltry shopping.

Don't close Minnesota Avenue, and don't take away any more parking elsewhere. A Promenade is not needed. The sidewalks provide plenty of walking room in the downtown area.

Students should behave with more maturity, have respect for other's property, at 17 or 18, they should know RIGHT from WRONG. I feel sorry for the other students' loss of celebration for their accomplishments because of the few individual's lack of common sense and respect...

The punishment of cancelling the events for the rest of the school was punitive and Orwellien. This collective punishment is reminiscent of the PRC or the CCP not the USA. Shame!

Should of not punished all students, 20 kids should pay for the senior BBQ and not be allowed to show. I do agree with lowering the charge from a felony.

These kids couldn't celebrate 8th grade promotion because of Covid, now they missed out on another normal tradition like the assembly to recognize the hard work of a majority of students. Bend Lapine prides itself of equity of all students yet the life skills kids didn't get that equity.

How dare poeple not give a damn about kids. When I was a kid you would get cited or arrested for indecent exposure. Enough with this lunacy way of thinking, other people besides naked people have rights too you all.

I support self expression, but public nudity could create opportunities for perverts to harm others. I am especially concerned about children walking around nude with strangers nearby.

The word indecent is self explanatory! It's there for a reason and no one wants to see other peoples private parts! Keep it behind closed doors in your PRIVATE HOMES!

As long as they are not engaging in immoral activities then they should be able to wear what they want, even if they don't want to wear anything. I do believe that even a first time event of anything sexual in public should involve a serious sentence. Rights shouldn't be revoked because of feelings

Very few people look better without clothes, and I don't want to see it. However, based on history and human behavior, there is no better way to make it popular than to make it illegal. Alcohol prohibition and banning assault rifles are good examples.

As usual, people who most vocally proclaim their own freedoms are the first to object to freedom for others.
