OSU Cascades Long Range Development Plan

SERA partnered with Page on the Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) for OSU’s Cascades Campus in Bend, Oregon. This master plan will expand the campus from its initial 10-acre, 3-building facility to a full 128-acre campus, serving 5,000 students. The LRDP addresses multiple facets of planning:

  • Preparing a technically complex site – including a former pumice mine over 100 feet deep and a former demolition landfill – for development
  • Siting academic, campus life and residential facilities for the university’s growth
  • Laying out a vision for an Innovation District, to allow for a variety of partnerships with emerging businesses and the community, and
  • Accommodating systems and strategies to meet OSU-Cascades’ goals of a campus that is net-zero energy and waste-, carbon- and water-neutral.

SERA assisted the University to capture the public’s input to create a shared vision for the campus and its role in the community.
