The Collaboration Project — through its work group on Neighborhood Planning — will evaluate and recommend unique zoning, housing, density and code programs and standards that will enhance neighborhood livability and minimize growth impacts around the Oregon State University campus.
The work group will work with community members, neighborhood residents and stakeholders, including Oregon State faculty, staff and students to address a wide range of housing and planning issues. The specific goals of the Neighborhood Planning work group are:
- Consider pros and cons of making adjustments to zoning and housing density in areas near the University.
- Review current development standards, and identify and recommend potential measures that would minimize impact from the creation of high-density housing in or near lower density residential areas.
- Review and recommend housing opportunities for Oregon State students that are compatible within the neighborhoods and Corvallis community.
