OSU-Cascades running into trouble with Bend neighbors

Apparently not everyone wants to live near a college campus. Steve Duin has the report in the Oregonian here:

BEND – In Oregon college circles, we all know which valley school trademarked the take-no-prisoners, make-no-apologies, our-way-or-the-highway approach to civic engagement.

But, shazam! Oregon State University is catching on, based on its aggressive approach to the siting of a west-side Bend campus.

UO lost millions on its various Bend efforts, propped up by Jim Bean and John Moseley, until Lariviere finally pulled the plug in 2010.

    Seems like both have a point. It is a bit late in the process to voice opposition to the campus, and OSU is right to plan for the near future, but OSU does have a responsibility to also plan for the distant future as well. This late in the process though, I’m not sure what solution is practical or fiscally responsible.

    A better question to ask: what could have been done differently for this objection to be made known earlier?
