The Collaboration Corvallis parking and traffic workgroup meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Osborn Aquatic Center, 1940 N.W. Highland Drive, to discuss on-campus car policies and bicycle and pedestrian safety.
The panel will review a draft recommendation on an Oregon State University assessment of the potential advantages and disadvantages of implementing a policy banning freshman students from bringing a car to campus.
Also to be discussed is a draft recommendation that would have OSU and the city jointly direct a safety examination of primary bicycle and pedestrian routes to and through campus as well as a safety analysis.
In addition, the workgroup will review a recommendation that would call for the university to study the feasibility of remote parking lots for students, as well as a proposal on the parking shuttle system on football game days.
The workgroup’s recommendations will be heard Sept. 18 by the steering committee for the project, which is examining neighborhood issues stemming from OSU enrollment growth.
All recommendations must go to the Corvallis City Council and OSU leadership for final approval.
