Re: “Letters 3/16-3/23

As I watch the pavement in almost every intersection in Bend explode in potholes and fight to keep my vehicle in the ruts on (put your street name here) I want to congratulate Councilmen Roats and Chudowsky on their success in defeating the gas tax measure. I now look forward to their detailed funding plan for street pavement replacement, repair, and maintenance. At this time, the onus rests on them to uncover the 'hidden' funds, reprioritize spending, and adequately budget the street construction and maintenance in Bend. Along with the rest of the anti-tax crowd, they wrote a check with their votes that the community at large wants to cash. Let's hope it doesn't bounce (the way my truck does every time I drive through the intersection of Third and Greenwood.)

Re: “Editorial 3/9-3/10

I'm sure that I am not the only one who noticed, but the conceptual drawing of the 'Heritage' proposal shows buildings on the Troy Field site, doesn't it? How is this preservation of the touted 'green space' the writer leads one to believe will include the field. The Heritage Square concept should be left to moulder along with the Mirror Pond restoration and the Juniper Ridge development area. 'It's a good notion that as a growing metropolis...' Really? We are a floundering growing small city that needs some serious leadership to handle the current problems, not bite off a whole new mouthful. The City of Bend can't maintain streets and other services. Come to the table with a market value offer--not bloody likely. BPRD? Why? What is the value for them to subsidize a city development well outside their purview? The community that wants this purchased by the community at large should put the pipe down. The school district will dispose of the property at the best price they can get. If someone wants it they should get in line and buy it.
