Higher Ed Board Approves Property Purchase


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.
