Growth in Bend: OSU-Cascades Expansion

Tue, 12/16/2014 (All day)

If you live in Bend, you’ve probably heard pros and cons about the development of the OSU-Cascades campus. If you haven’t been following the issue, the University is planning to build on a 10-acre site to accommodate more students and then potentially expand onto an adjacent 46-acre site in the future. This has raised concerns about increased traffic, increased stress on the already stressed housing market, and the location of the campus itself - whether or not the 46-acre site is even safe or desirable to build on.

We’re continuing our tour of our Land Use Trail. Today, March 3: Ranch Under the Rimrock, Governor Tom McCall’s childhood home in the desert of Crook County.
