Corvallis Gazette-Times: Planning Commission approves OSU plan for new residence hallPosted March 21st, 2013 by raskausn
[Corvallis Gazette-Times, March 21, 2013] — The Corvallis Planning Commission unanimously passed Oregon State University’s proposal for a new residence hall Thursday night.
The vote came at the end of a three-hour meeting that included some contentious testimony from residents concerned about parking and traffic.
OSU hopes to build a residence hall that would house up to 300 students on what is now a parking lot whose boundaries are Southwest Adams Avenue, Southwest Washington Avenue, Southwest 13th Street and Southwest 14th Street.
The proposal required city approval because it represented an adjustment to OSU’s master plan. The commission also passed a recommendation on a Land Development Code text amendment that must accompany the master plan adjustment.
