City of Bend Works to Prevent Transients in the Juniper Ridge Area

It's a continuing challenge and there have been recent complaints about transients near Juniper Ridge.

 

Assistant City Manager Jon Skidmore talked about the problem with the city council recently.

 

"The problem is it's like whack a mole.  We try to be pro active, but they just show up somewhere else.  We try to block off the access into there and unfortuantely most of the transients aren't driving there so."

 

The city of Bend works with the Central Oregon Veterans Organization and Deschutes County Mental Health to help move these homeless camps as humanely as possible.
