The Oregon Department of Transportation says they are beginning the process, again, of finding a new location for the Bend Department of Motor Vehicles Office.  Dave Thompson, spokesman for ODOT says the process will be very open to the public: "Because we learned out lesson there, with the large number of complaints that people weren't involved; in the future we're going to use a different State negotiation process that absolutely includes early and often public input. Right now we've started over to look at where we could put the DMV in the Bend area; so that we provide citizens with the best service and we'll use a process that absolutely includes the public." Thompson says the old process used for the Brookswood Market Location, was a process that had been used for decades, that was very cost effective; but since it caused so many problems in the past, they will use the process that will have a lot of public access and input before a decision is made.  He adds that they are very early in the new location search. But they will have well- publicized meetings before any movement is made.
