No, other letter writers, you are not the only ones who think putting OSU on the west-side of Bend is not a good idea!
Have any of those people on the committee who recommended this decision ever tried to drive Newport, Galveston, or Century during school hours? Bumper-to-bumper traffic and long lines at all intersections are the current conditions. COCC’s start increases traffic even more.
Juniper Ridge would allow the north side of Bend to expand and develop. The cost of repairing the old dump site could be spent on a traffic interchange on the north end of Bend.
This last-minute announcement appears to have been made to avoid the citizens a chance to ask, “What is OSU thinking”?
The west side does not need more traffic.
If OSU built on the north side of Bend, it would make so much more sense to me.
