Open space is limited in the city of Bend and is important to preserve for now and the future.

I live in Bend for immediate access to unblighted open space, not narrow strips of token open space hedged in by buildings and development.

Since coid is taxpayer-funded that would mean taxpayers own that land. We should be able to decide what is done with it not the bureaucrats that work for us. So there should be no need for new taxes. Hell if it is sold we should get a tax refund since it was paid for with our money to begin with.

I pay enough taxes currently to support more open spaces. Why is it always more with the government? They should focus on waste and stretch what they are currently getting.

The people that want to stop development should pool their own money and buy it. Then pay the property taxes like all other land owners. No more on going expenses to other tax payers that don't use it like the ice rink.

Absolutely not!! Bend bilks property owners for every little thing they want to preserve or fund. I am ALL for increasing alcohol, cigarette and gas taxes, so that EVERYONE shares in the pain of extra taxes. I am REALLY tired of property owners always bearing the brunt for EVERYTHING Bend wants!!

Happy treason day! The day we celebrate past treasons dressed up as freedom. while condemning any thought of treason even if it be for the same reason!

It's hard to feel patriotic when a small percentage of people enforce laws on women, jeopardizing their lives. The "Supreme Court" is a joke. Now families will fall sick from polluted air and water without the safety net of regulations, jeopardizing our future for the profiteering of big companies.

Like you go to the library. And this would be a third location in Bend, there is one on the Eastside near Costco. Further proof you don't know anything about how busy the library is, you just like to hear yourself whine.
