But only if it was fully enforced.

Yes , I believe if you make it inconvenient for homeless people to set up camp , they will move on to another city. I do support homeless situations , if they take responsibility by checking into drug free shelters.

Most of what I hear on the news is about the homeless people, not much is reported on the infringement, the stress, nuisance, violence, drug use, filth and garbage that the decent law abiding, tax paying citizens are forced to endure! They need to stop enabling bad behavior! The focus seems wrong!

Exactly! The ban would work if aggressively enforced otherwise the result will be another Hunnell Rd, Juniper Ridge, China Hat, etc, etc.. With over 1500 calls to Bend PD for Hunnell Rd, how can this be called humane? The USFS should enact the same ban against free extended camping.

A camping ban may reduce the homeless tourism numbers or their length of stay, but the remaining homeless will simply become more emboldened about violating existing restrictions.

So you have to move every 24 hours, that's not a actual camping ban! How about provide them jobs like picking up trash, farning

I do not want meth heads working. They are dangerous enough already. And the ones that aren't junkies have ample opportunities for jobs and shelter, they choose not to.

Do you think technology & phones should be limited in schools?

Kids spend way too much time on phones. They need to concentrate on reading, writing and arithment which schools need to go back to teaching. I believe social media has harmed our children.

Kids need to think about studies without hunger.

There are so many families who can't afford to pay for lunches whether it is hot or cold. I think this is going to be so helpful. ❤️

I believe that since it is from our tax money and property taxes that all should be able to go eat for free

Why give all the free meals to the ungrateful bums that live of free handouts but refuse to work for it. Feed our kids.
