The Bend City Council threw their support behind the development of a four year college in Bend Wednesday night. 

 

After a very long city council meeting, councilors were eager to pass a motion that supports OSU/Cascades proposed expansion to a four year campus here in Bend.

 

Councilor Kathie Eckman read the motion:  “I move that the council authorize granting $125,000 to Oregon State University, to be used only for development of a 4-year college campus in Bend. And to make available an additional $125,000 to pay city fees imposed on the development of the anticipated 4 year OSU Campus in Bend. The construction and operation of a 4-year college in campus will contribute to economic development. and I know all of us agree to that, very much so. I further move to direct staff to prepare a resolution for council; consideration to include details regarding the payment."

 

The Council had approached the subject during a July council meeting, but decided to make it formal last night; and they did with a unanimous "yes" vote.
