Some bright spots in the local building industry. The City of Bend is noticing a slight up tick in the number of building permits issued. “Permits were up from 2009 to 2010 about 25% in the City of Bend. Which is obviously a good sign. That means we have hit bottom and are on our way back up.” But Tim Knopp of the Central Oregon Building Association cautions us there are still some foreclosures that will bring more homes to market, but he feels like we have seen the brunt of those. To put it in perspective, 2000 building permits were issued in Bend in 2006 and by 2009 that had dropped to 150.
