Some members of the Bend City Council want to tighten up the restrictions to prohibit loitering, panhandling, or sitting on the sidewalk. Some Council members like Mark Cappell don't agree: “The City of Portland passed an ordinance to stop people from laying and sitting on the sidewalk downtown. They ended up being challenged in court and lost. So, getting an ordinance that wouldn't cost us money is a bit of a challenge.” However, some Councilors feel tourists and shoppers feel intimidated by the pan handlers and people loitering downtown and that the City should do something to ensure visitors feel safe and welcome downtown.
