The best place for OSU

Am I the only one who thinks the location of the new OSU Cascades Campus is crazy? Traffic options in the area are limited and already prone to congestion. The environmental concerns may or may not be an issue. (Remember the athletic fields at Summit High School?) To me, it would make sense to situate the campus more centrally for the entire region, allowing easier access for students from all of Central Oregon, as well as room to expand. What is happening with the Juniper Ridge land? I'm not sure how many options have been considered and I don't know who stands to benefit from the sale of his or her property, but I think all of us may benefit from seriously considering other locations. To quote comedian Dennis Miller, “That's just my opinion. I could be wrong.”
