The college is making plans to house students elsewhere temporarily in the Fall of 2015 -- if building of the new campus is delayed over land use complaints.
Mike Hollern has been involved in the site selection process .. and is frustrated with news of a potential delay.
"I'd say it's just disappointing. It's the way land use works in our state. I think its smart for Becky and OSU Cascades to have contingency plans in case the appeals process holds things up. But we'd be able to enroll freshmen September 2015. I hope they can accommodate them at the site selected, because I think it's a great site."
OSU Cascades submitted its site application plan to the city of Bend last Friday. The city has sent it to a hearings officer anticipating an appeal.
