We need open spaces for the health of the land and our citizens.

Instead of another mega park that is a destination people have to drive to, they should be thinking of making more small neighborhood parks, with the simple things- shade-trees- few benches or picnic tables. We need more small community gathering spaces. The northeast side is especially neglected.

Yes , for recreation purpose, green space, dog walking , kids playing.. Not another place for the homeless to set up camp and trash another park.

I love Bend Park and Rec. They offer so much to the community. I can't imagine Bend without them.

Good move by Park & Rec to get the land now. This is quite close to where several thousand new homes are planned.

We don't need more places for the homeless to set up a dilapidated camp, strewn with trash, needles, and drug deals.

Parks and recs receive far too much of the budget as it is.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
