Deschutes National Forest Supervisor's Office looses lease!


Deschutes National Forest Headquarters To Relocate

Ochoco and Deschutes National Forests and Prineville District, Bureau of Land Management
Office of Communications  "Working as One to Serve Central Oregon"
For immediate release: October 22, 2004—8:30 a.m.

BEND--Deschutes National Forest employees are moving—twice.

All 130 employees who work in the headquarters office at 1645 Highway 20 East will vacate the office by November 2nd. Their new building on the west side of Bend will be ready for occupancy in mid-January.

Public services will cease at the old address on November 1st. All customer service continues with no interruption at the Bend/Fort Rock Ranger Station at 1230 N. E. Third Street while headquarters’ employees are at temporary locations. The telephone number for public information at Bend/Fort Rock is (541) 383-4000.

Since the lease is exhausted at the old headquarters building and the new building will be ready in mid-January, employees are locating temporarily at several offices in central Oregon. These include offices at the Bend Pine Nursery, Redmond Air Center, Bend/Fort Rock R.D. and the Ochoco National Forest’s Supervisor’s Office in Prineville. When the lease expires at a building where Federal employees work, the government enters into a competitive process to find new office space. The Deschutes National Forest will be located at 1001 Southwest Emkay Drive after mid-January.

Phone numbers will remain the same during the interim and long-term moves. Employees can be reached at all locations to conduct regular government business. The headquarters telephone number remains (541) 383-5300. The public should call the number to locate headquarters employees’ temporary offices.

We will keep the public posted when the move-in date becomes final at the new location in early 2005. It is the hope of Deschutes National Forest employees that disruptions to service will be minimal, and convenient customer service for the public is maintained.
