A majority of respondents say they value the pond's beauty and historical significance.

 

But there's a divide on whether to remove the dam and let the river return to its natural state or to keep the dam and dredge the pond.

 

The unscientific questionnaire shows a pretty even split between the two options.

 

The next two months, Bend Parks and Rec will try to come up with four options for residents to consider on what to do with Mirror Pond.

 

These options may include doing nothing, removing the dam  or doing some kind of designer dredging.

 

There will be several public forums for people to offer their opinion in the coming months.
