Community Identified Issues and CEAC Task Force Assignments

Hundreds of community members have helped identify nearly 40 issues that the campus and community are tackling together to create a welcoming, productive and enduring university campus, and to help maintain the vibrance and beauty of the surrounding communities.The Campus Expansion Advisory Committee is leading the effort to determine recommendations for each that will be made to OSU-Cascades, its partners or other parties.

Structure for Determining Recommendations

Each issue is assigned to primary and sometimes secondary CEAC Task Forces. The primary Task Force is responsible for gathering data and analyzing an assigned issue and researching best practices. Primary Task Forces will present recommendations at CEAC meetings, with the branch campus responding to final recommendations at the December 2015 CEAC meeting.

Community Involvement

The nearly 40 issues were identified through outreach opportunities including those listed below. Input will be continually gathered at future outreach events and opportunities.

  • Community Open Houses on December 12 and 13, 2013 via feedback forms, breakout discussions and online feedback (deadline for submission: January 31, 2014). See executive summary.
  • CEAC and Task Force discussions and meetings (Neighborhood Livability, Sustainability, Transportation)
  • Neighborhood association and homeowners association meetings
  • Civic gatherings and presentations
  • Meetings with and emails and correspondence from individual community members
  • Partner input via the City of Bend, Bend Parks and Recreation, COCC and others
