Deschutes and Crook counties are among the fastest-growing communities in the nation, according to new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

You can see the growth all around you. New hotels, apartment buildings and residential communities are sprouting up all around us. Housing inventory for sale remains very low as we come into the spring selling season. New building permits are still far off from the high of 2006.

People are moving to Central Oregon and can you blame them!
