Do you agree with having more duplexes/triplexes to help the housing crunch?
Yes, I think it's a good idea!
I don't think it's a good idea!
We are ruining the quality of life many moved here for. It is Not healthy to pack more and more people closer and closer together.Reply
People have paid to be in the type of neighborhood they're in and don't want to have multi-unit housing mixed in.Reply
Developers should not be allowed to build in residential neighborhoods if they aren't providing adequate parking. Lower income housing has more adults with vehicles living in tighter quarters.Reply
Resources are more than just a room to live in. What about electricity, water ......Reply
We barely manage the water resources correctly that we do have, those who have water rights have to WASTE water on fallow fields in order to keep their rights, and all the golf courses sucking endless water, unmanaged forests burning, spotted tree frogs draining reservoirs..NoReply
No! If the Chamber of Commerce (or whomever) would quit advertising Bend, people might stop coming here and trying to move here! Bend is getting overrun. Building these types of housing near single family homes brings down those values. It also invites more noise, more traffic, more negatives.Reply
Not what homeowners planned when originally purchasing a home. This is a ridiculous plan that will impact many residents who chose a specific location based on the zoning. I will fight anyone trying to put a duplex or two story etc... next to my home.Reply
Adding multiplexes is fine. But not on lots designed for single family homes.Reply
The only way to bring more affordability to BendReply
It is a good idea as long as they are not allowed to be vacation rentals.Reply
But they need to be affordable. Like lower income housing that's not run down.Reply
Unless we want to continue urban sprawl forever, this is a necessary change. Anything that supports a build up not out approach is a good idea for the future and longevity of this city.Reply
Build them along with condo and apartment towers, pack that city, the more the merrier.Reply
