DMV: Consensus is NO! 


The community's response to the DMV moving into Brookswood Plaza is overwhelmingly "NO!"

-SW Bend neighborhoods - NO

-Any Bend neighborhood and DMV - NO

-All seven Bend City Council
members - NO

-The Bend Bulletin - NO

-the Source Weekly - NO

-Real Estate brokers - NO

-Teachers and daycare centers - NO

-Intent of zoning code - NO

-Traffic Planning - NO

What part of NO is not being understood by DMV and plaza/market owner Travis Lovejoy? Mr Lovejoy may get a few DMV customers into his market, but he has alienated the rest of us. By the way, when responding to the question, "Mr Lovejoy, would you want the DMV in your backyard?" He said, "I've thought about that, and yes it would be ok with me." So then, let's move the DMV to Awbrey Butte and let him deal with the traffic, noise, pollution, decreased market value for his home, etc.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
