The Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles is getting closer to making a decision on where to put Bend's DMV. A feasibility study just completed found it would cost $1.5- million to renovate the Welcome Center on Highway 97, where they are currently located. Oregon DMV spokesman Dave Thompson says they're considering several options: “Now we look at comparables to see if that is the best use of taxpayer money. If there is, we'll bring the alternatives to the citizens, and ask their opinion.  It there’s not, if it’s jusy sticking around in the Welcome Center and spending the million and a half, then we’ll certainly let people know, but I don't think they're will be a lot of argument if we decide to stay there.” The DMV is looking at comparable retail and commercial space in the central Bend area. Last year, the DMV backed off plans to put the new DMV Office off of Brookswood, when residents had a fit. The DMV hopes to make a final decision on a  permanent  location in the next month or two.
