Cultivating Tomorrow's Economy


DOING BUSINESS IN BEND REGIONAL BUSINESS NEWS

 

Bend is the lifestyle city, cultivating tomorrow's economy. Local businesses range from startups to long-established companies. Together they’ve helped lead Central Oregon back from the depths of an historic recession to among the fastest growing economies in the country.

The region's vibrant economy is serviced by city staff and local organizations committed to economic development.


IS LIFESTYLE PART OF YOUR BUSINESS PLAN?

The City of Bend requires that all businesses located in the City or doing business within City limits hold a valid Business Registration. This $50 fee is renewed annually; businesses can apply or renew online at bendoregon.gov/businessregistration.

When it comes to city policy, the business community has a direct line to the City Council via the Bend Economic Development Advisory Board (BEDAB). The Council chartered 13-member board consists of nine representatives from Bend's major industry and 4 staff members from the city's primary economic development partners. Access the committee roster and meeting materials here.   

If you have any questions about doing business in Bend, contact Ben Hemson, Business Advocate at (541) 388-5529 or bhemson@bendoregon.gov.
