Oregon State University is hoping to add three words to the sign on the facade outside of its baseball facility, Goss Stadium.

The sign currently reads “Goss Stadium.” The university wants to add the words “At Coleman Field.”

But because the stadium is in the section of campus that is registered as a National Historic District, the sign change requires a public hearing.

The Corvallis Historic Resources Commission will review the sign application at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the downtown fire station, 400 N.W. Harrison Blvd.

The current threshold for signage requires an exemption if the sign exceeds 32 square feet. The OSU plan calls for an additional eight square feet.

Ironically, the addition of “At Coleman Field” restores the facade to the wording that was used from 1999-2009.

“This request simply adds back in what was there originally,” said David Dodson, OSU campus planning manager. “New signage is not a significant alteration.”
