Our teens need a place to stay active that is not cost-prohibitive (skiing, private team leagues) and is accessible to all. My teen plays basketball, and there is literally ONE full public outdoor court and NO public indoor courts in this city. No basketball courts in this plan, however?????

It would somehow end up as an expense for property owners to pay for. The majority of our homeowner property taxes already go to schools as it is. This would undoubtedly end up costing property owners to fund such a complex. I am not in favor of having to fund anything else for schools.

These would pay for themselves if used correctly Medford has them and they are always full with teams Tournaments League's not to mention the tourism money just like the Mountain does Look at the big Picture I am a property owner also but money coming in would far out weigh the taxes

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.
