The Oregon State Board of Higher Education has approved the purchase of 56 acres of land to begin building the new Central Oregon campus for OSU/Cascades.


OSU/Cascades spokesperson Christine Coffin says the purchase of the 2 property land should be completed by March of 2014.


A 10-acre property currently owned by Cascades Property Holdings, LLC, should close in October but a 46- acre parcel owned by 4-R Equipment, LLC probably won't close until next March.


That larger parcel contains a pumice mine and is zoned residential, so a remediation plan needs to be developed.


Coffin says University officials are working with the City of Bend and the Campus Expansion Advisory Committee to outline a master planning process and keep the public informed.
