The officer heard public testimony from more than 200 proponents and opponents back in June in Bend.

 

Opponents wanted to see the colegee present a master plan for future growth, but the hearings officer ruled that wasn't required until the college buys more  land.  They currently own a ten acre parcel at southwest Century and Chandler.

 

OSU Cascades Vice President Becky Johnson is happy with the decision.

 

"Very relieved, very optimsitic and excited that we are finally getting around to building a campus, something the community has wanted for three decades.  I know there are more processes invovled in this, but it's a great first step."

 

"I want to reiterate that our goal is to be a good neighbor.  That doesn't mean that we'll stop listening.  We are moving forward on a campus and hopefully neighbors will be active participants in that planning."

 

The opposition to OSU Cascades has said in the past it would appeal if the decision did not go in their favor, so they have twelve days to do that.

 

Any appeal would be heard by the Bend City Council.
