Re: “We've hit peak "us vs. them" ire. Is this who we want to be?

For me, its not an issue of wanting tourism or even people wanting to move into the community. It is the way tourism and growth have been handled. You have pushing for tourism and growth, but nobody is dealing with the infrastructure to handle it. Months were spent on sidewalk repair, but nothing to deal with the traffic and bottlenecks. We now have people living on the street because there isn't affordable housing, yet developers are building new hotels. If we want to cool off some of the anti tourism tempers out there, fix the problems that it creates.

Re: “Rethinking City Council

They have to earn a salary first.
Has any of them considered even the slightest that we have a traffic problem here? Forget about the pothole issue and the sewer issue for a second. Traffic is horrible here.
I live on reed market and third and i cant even sit outside anymore without smelling exhaust and diesel from all the cars and trucks idling all the way back to american lane!!!.
If the council is putting in 55 hours a week i am wondering what its for

Re: “Dear Tenant, You Must Vacate the Premises

Something HAS to be done with this greed and housing market in Bend.. and in Oregon... and in the USA. It should be illegal to put someone out in a homeless camp just because they want to remodel and make more money. Especially when they have nowhere to go.
I'm looking for a house to buy now.. because in a few months my rent will be at the same price for a 2 bed 2 bath apartment 925 sq ft. as it will be for a mortgage on a 1150 sq ft 3 bed 2 bath house with garage and lawn. People need to wake up and put a stop to this and other things that are happening in our community

Re: “Tiny Homes

How about the city of bend allow for affordable housing.. How about the State of Oregon coming up with renter rights that limit the percentage of rent increases to 5% a year?
Why does the houses in the area have to go for 400,000 when they aren't worth 200,000 at the most. Is it because the people on city counsel and the home owners at aubrey butte want to run the working class out of town?

Re: “Letters 2/10-2/17

In response to Barely Getting By... Minimum wage doesn't have much to do with what is happening here in CO. If the rental market wouldn't be so damn greedy, the guy making 10.25 an hour would have a chance. Raising the minimum wage will only cause the rates everywhere to go up even more.. and people making a "living wage" will then go down suppressing the middle class more than ever.
What we need is a rental regulation that keeps these landlords from raising the rent 200.00 a month a year. Put a freeze on rate increases across the board and give tax incentives for those landlords that will rent at reasonable rates so we all can afford to live here instead of pushing the working class out of Bend. Raising the minimum wage will only cause more people unable to afford a decent living

Re: “The Price of Green Grass

I think we all should think about keeping this high desert a high desert... We don't need this area to look like vermont or any other area except what it is/was naturally. We will be in serious trouble soon enough without water, we don't need to waste it on who has the greenest grass growing on their lawns.
