The university wants to put it on the westside and is seeking approval from the city of Bend to develop the site.
But many residents on that side of town are fighting those plans.
Bend City Manager Eric King says the OSU Cascades application is in front of a city of Bend hearings officer.
"The process becomes more formal and the city needs to be netural as we go through the application process. The city needs to be careful as any developer who would be applying . We have to review their application based on criteria in our code."
City councilors are anticipating to hear an appeal on the university's plan for the new campus.
This issue could ultimately land in front of the State Land Use Board of Appeals.
