The City of Bend will soon have a business advocate. John Skidmore starts Monday. City Manager Eric King says the purpose of the position is to implement the Strategic Plan for Economic Development in Bend, which includes advocacy in City Hall, and recruitment of small businesses. “We actually have some incentives we've got a tenant relocation system where we will provide a 50% discount on planning permit building fees we have an opportunity fund if you're creating jobs we'll give you a forgivable loan to create those jobs. We're streamlining our processes to make it quick and easy to do business here in Bend and we just want to send the message that we're open for business. " King says the former developer John Skidmore has struggled in the past with the challenges of opening a business in Bend. That's why the City Manager believes Skidmore is the perfect person to take on the task of advocating for up and coming business in the Bend City Hall.
