I try to avoid Bend as much as possible.

If you're going to spend that kind of money, then maybe you should use it for better use. The homeless could use more refurbished hotel/motels and or you could just build a facility. Trying to make our city pretty for the sake of wasting money makes me wonder what our city counselors are thinking.

If the Franklin and Greenwood underpasses were not close by, it wouldn't be a total waste. But they are so it is.

The homeless won't even use it.... they'll continue to just wander across the parkway at their own leisure.

Only for those in that direct vicinity. How many people really need to cross right there anyway?

I dont walk or ride a bike to go shopping or to work. 20 million is a lot of money to spend for another very short bike/walking trail.

Get real!! who's going to use it. That's $25,000,000 to get a handful of people across the parkway that could be put to better use.

for $25 million if 500 people cross it in a year that's 5000 in 10 years That's $5000 a crossing. Buy them a cab.

Don't see any benefit for anyone other than maybe those who can sell land to the city. I live in SE Bend. I am not going to drive over to the bridge, park, cross over the bridge, and walk several blocks to downtown.

Do you think the changes to the Fairwell Festival will help traffic this year?

The infrastructure and the systems for Pretty much anything are so backward in Central Oregon That I don't have a lot of optimism even something as simple as traffic in and out of an event

I hate to say it, But like thousands of people in Central Oregon I moved here to 10 years ago, In Central Oregon is "behind the times" About 20 years, I don't mean to sound mean because the people are typically wonderful But they're just stupid

So what do they need to do?

Of course not. If it did, how would Mayor McCheese justify the millions he wants to spend on building a road to benefit his developer patrons.
