I love when idiots who make popcorn for a living start spewing about science, history and "freedom" when all they really know about is being spoiled and privileged. Goodbye odem!

Vote with your money what practices you are willing to accept. Early in the Trump pandemic I stopped going to places where their attitudes and practices I felt unsafe. I'm tired of hearing touting their personal freedom at the expense of societal responsibility.

Yes I would. I believe in customer service. Businesses need to be neutral. If I want their opinion, I'll ask for it.

While they have freedom of opinion, I also have the freedom to shop there or not.

Yes, because we all need to support stopping this virus. Saving American lives, bringing back our economy and our way of life depends upon our actions. If any business can't come to the assistance of the American people, then I'm not shopping there.

I have a very strong tie with multiple cultures, due to being mixed ethnicity.To have any them trampled & delineated for clout, or to increase a fan base is deplorable. There are no jokes about the Holocaust, to think there are is Farpust..

Yes only if they tried to impose their views on the customers or employees. Otherwise no, I would still go.

This is an issue that has an effect on every commercial development in the whole city. A gas station is a dinosaur and we don’t need any more! The city needs to support walkability, bikability, and connectivity.

SE Bend citizens deserve a micro-community that takes people out of their cars and walking and biking to healthy options for food and services. Another gas station in this area is redundant and downright disrespectful. City council listening to this issue is the right thing to do!!

I have lived in this area of Bend for 20+ years. There are 3 gas stations within 1 mile of this location and we do not want another. I ask the City Council to hear our objections to a gas station at Murphy/Brosterhaus. Listen to the homeowners and citizens and not $$$$. Thank You...

Because it is in direct conflict with the CCAP goals of reducing use of fossil fuel. Allowing a new gasoline station to be built in an established neighborhood with six existing fueling stations nearby does not align with demonstrating leadership in attaining CCAP goals, objectives or goals.

We do NOT want a gas station on Murphy and Brosterhaus. An out of town oil company does not make a good neighbor. Schools, a park, homes and multiple school bus stops shouldn't have to share space with this type of business. Our city should support their voters, not big business.

For transparency. For a more democratic process. 2000 petition signers should not be dismissed in what some might perceive as callow and arrogant.

Outdated city codes need to be addressed by the city.This is an example of how older codes are not acceptable to residents now. Why would a city allow polluting gas stations and businesses that greatly increase traffic in the middle of a residential neighborhood & blocks from an elementary school?

The Hearings Officer ignored city code and shifted the burden opposition. This is bad for Bend as developments will no longer have to comply with code and the city and opponents will have hire experts, conduct studies to prove the development doesn't meet code. this will hurt everyone.

Cities are banning new gas stations. Bend is allowing them in neighborhoods? Why doesn't the city of Bend listen to its residents' concerns in this neighborhood, 85% of whom oppose this gas station and have no problems getting gas 1 1/2 miles away? Residents want a grocery, brewpub, daycare.

Were you just kidding about all of your lofty "goals". Or, did the "contributions" from the developers persuade you to look the other way?

City pushing an agenda w/o constituents support or input. City pushing it down the throats of the neighborhood directly affected. Take it slow w/appropriate discourse of the public!

Way to late to worry about traffic, probably little if any increase.
