Real Estate professionals in our area say it’s become a real challenge for businesses to expand or relocate to the Bend-Redmond area, and that’s having a dramatic impact on our local economy.   Brian Fratzke is a Commercial Real Estate Advisor in Bend who says he gets calls every day from new companies trying to get into the market that he has to turn away.  Without new companies moving to the area, new jobs they’d bring with them aren’t coming.  To compound the problem, Fratzke says the permitting process for new construction or an expansion to existing construction has gone from a max of six months to a year or more - largely because of backlogged construction requests.
