BEND, OR -- OSU Cascades is increasing future land expansion options. The college is looking at Deschutes County's former demolition landfill, located just north of the site it already owns on Chandler and Mt. Washington Drive. 

 

County Administrator Tom Anderson tells KBND County Commissioners will discuss Monday morning whether to help OSU Cascades study whether the land is viable. "It's non-binding, so it doesn't lock either the county or OSU Cascades into anything. It's a partnership, really, to provide assistance to them in doing some additional assessment of what that site really is, in terms of environmental waste and cost of clean-up."

 

He says studying the property is important because there are many variables. "It differs by areas of the site and the amount of remediation necessary, depending on the kind of use that would be done over the impacted areas of the site."
 
If the agreement is approved, it could take up to two years to evaluate whether the land can be used for the college's expansion.
