As 2011 ended, more businesses were expressing an interest to either relocate to the Central Oregon area or to expand in our area. Roger Lee with Economic Development for Central Oregon says 2012 looks to have a very bright beginning. "If we look at our portfolio of projects where companies are looking to decisions in the short term, it's as full as it ever has been. I think we are currently working with 91, 92 companies. And roughly a third of those are new companieslooking to move in but two dozen are local companies looking to expand this year." Lee says people are really feeling more confident with the economy, and incentives to move here are looking better and better. He says many of in interested companies are technology in data center businesses, some looking at Prineville or La Pine. Lee says the bottom line is: there will be many more jobs in our future.
