Some Awbrey Butte residents are not happy about plans to extend a road on the Central Oregon Community College Campus. The City approved the extension, but members of the Awbrey Butte Neighborhood Association have concerns about noise and aesthetics. Tim Coe is a property owner and currently lives in Ohio, but plans to build when he retires here: “I’m a scientist and my first questions is have they studied the need for the road and looked at alternatives and why devalue the neighborhood when a road of questionable value could be placed somewhere else.” COCC hold a public hearing for neighbors, though they didn't have to. COCC V.P. of Administration, Matt McCoy says they are taking steps to accommodate neighbors, there’s a 100 foot landscape buffer between residential property. It’s 100 feet onto the college, so you can't build within one foot from the existing private property line. Homeowners are still deciding whether to appeal to the state's land use board of appeals.
