Prineville must be feeling prosperous. There is a lot of new paint on the businesses on the main street going into town.

That area used to look shabby and defeated. Now it is looking tidy and well cared for.

We did joke, though, that while Bend is buying expensive art for all the traffic circles, Prineville can afford 6 nice wrought iron lamp posts on the bridge going into town. (That same bridge is sporting a new coat of paint)

Prineville is trying desperately to attract more Data Center business. In fact ANY business right now. That probably explains the new paint jobs more then anything.

Default New Paint in Prineville

Am just back on this forum. . . but sans my username, for same odd reason. I did reset PW and not user name. So, here I am, posting anyway. We have been looking at the Bend area, at large, in order to relocate to be closer to our kids and grands in Portland. Need some place dry and not too remote, but not overcrowded. I am encouraged to see Paint Going Up and facelifts to Prineville. It is an area we did not even consider for retirement 4 1/2 yrs. ago when we moved to the desert SW for the climate and health reasons! However, we are looking at Prineville seriously, as it seems to be offering a better looking environment than it did in the mid-2000's. ALSO, am noticed 2012 crime stats grafts on this forum. It seems that the crime is going down a lot in the past 5-8 yrs. or so.

I hope to see more refurbishing of this little country "burb" of Redmond. Where we currently live is very inexpensive for utilities and property taxes and the house itself was so much less for a 3/2 1550 sf 9 yr. old home with vaults and cathedral ceilings. Beautiful granite upgrades in the nice working kitchen for my love of cooking and baking!

Really appreciate any comments about the deeper layers of what is going on in Prineville!! Thanks and it is great to be back.
