More than 50 people turned out for Tuesday night's "Stop the DMV" meeting. It was mainly an informational meeting, to catch residents up on the latest efforts to prevent the DMV from moving into the Brookswood Plaza. “The general trend is the people were very encouraged. This process started on August 30th and here we are mid November and nothing has transpired except for a fence around the building. Things are working out in our favor and we're encouraged by that.” Joe Mansifeld with "Stop the DMV" says the group is waiting to hear whether the City of Bend will grant a building permit to the shopping center landlord for the DMV improvements. If they do grant a permit, the group plans to appeal.
