After a 16 month long search, the DMV says they are staying put in their facility on the north side of Bend.  ODOT spokesman Dave Thompson says they did a lot of math and realized that doing an upgrade to the building will be cheaper in the long run, compared to signing a 10 to 15 year lease at another location. “I freely admit this took us a long time. And I'm sure many people in Bend are wondering why it took us so long to reach what they think was a foregone conclusion, but to make it a foregone conclusion we had to do the home-work and we had to do it right to be fair to everybody." Thompson says it will cost about $1.5 million to renovate the current building and parking lot.  Bend's DMV Field Offices moved to the former Visitors Center several years ago after their lease ran out in a building on SW Emkay Drive.
