DMV Looking for More Options


"All options are on the table." That's the word today from the State in choosing a new DMV office in Bend. Yesterday the DMV announced that they are pulling out of controversial plans to open an office at the Brookswood Meadow Plaza. Going forward, the State plans to open up all ideas to the robust Public Works process used in large highway projects.  ODOT's David House says that will mean lots of public testimony,  lots of time and all ideas, including Brookswood Plaza, up for discussion. House says what is lost with this direction is the ability to negotiate better deals thru a private process. "For example we've been using the Department of Administrative Services to act as a real estate agent to essentially act as a private company and go out and negotiate confidentially and get the best deal for taxpayers. We can do that when it's a space that's under 10 thousand square feet." Hundreds of neighbors near the Plaza fought the DMV's plans to move in;  they feared the office would bring in too much traffic and thought the location was too remote for most people in Bend.
