Poor decision as it will result in farmers/ranchers paying much more in taxes with their minimal population base. The potential money from the County will be minimal and insufficient to support their governing needs and expenses.

This seems to be one man's project. Are the residents forming their own fire district or even meeting as a community, things that unincorporated communities do? Why change the name to something so bland? Sounds like he wants to build a waterless subdivision.

Much more expenses for the ranchers, farmers. Very destructive to the land and wildlife. In time just another liberal city with crime and homeless.

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

I agree with commissioner Patti Adair - there are other alternatives.

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