Another big week is coming for the OSU/city collaboration process.

The three-year project to work on issues between Corvallis and Oregon State University includes two key meetings next week.

First, the neighborhood livability workgroup meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on campus for the first time at the Memorial Union in the Joyce Powell Journey Room.

This will be the last opportunity for the workgroup to propose recommendations to the project’s steering committee before that group releases its latest proposals. The group has been focusing at its recent sessions on ways to give the Corvallis Police Department more tools to handle student behavior issues in the neighborhoods.

Invitations to the livability workgroup meeting have been extended to Corvallis neighborhood associations as well as on-campus groups such as the Associated Students of Oregon State University, the InterFraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council and the Unified Greek Council. The public also is welcome.

The effort’s steering committee, meanwhile, meets at 5 p.m. Thursday at the downtown fire station, 400 N.W. Harrison Blvd.

The steering committee will discuss proposals forwarded by the neighborhood livability workgroup as well as workgroups examining parking and traffic and neighborhood planning. The public is invited to give testimony on the project.

All recommendations approved by the steering committee move on to consideration by the City Council and OSU leadership.

In other meetings:


• The Philomath City Council meets at 4 p.m. at City Hall, 980 Applegate St., in executive session, which is not open to the public. Councilors are scheduled to discuss a property transaction.


• The Corvallis Commission for Martin Luther King, Jr., meets at 5 p.m. at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, 645 N.W. Monroe Ave.

• The Corvallis Historic Resources Commission meets at 5:30 p.m. at the Parks and Recreation Conference Room, 1310 S.W. Avery Park Drive. There will be public hearings about the OSU Black Cultural Center and the Kathleen Stephenson House (226-228 N.W. 30th St.).


• The Corvallis Watershed Management Advisory Committee meets at 5 p.m. at the Madison Avenue Meeting Room, 500 S.W. Madison Ave.

• The Corvallis Arts and Culture Commission meets at 5:30 p.m. at the Parks and Recreation Conference Room.
