7th Street Station holds open house in wake of livability complaints
The 7th Street Station apartment complex has received regular visits from the Corvallis Police Department since it opened Sept. 21.
According to a Gazette-Times review of police crime statistics, officers have made six calls and issued two special response notice warning citations on the past six Saturday nights alone.
Neighbor Nancy Hagood, who lives across the street from the student housing complex, offered her take on the situation Oct. 30 at a meeting of the Collaboration Corvallis neighborhood livability workgroup, one of three groups that is examining issues involving the city and the presence of Oregon State University students in the neighborhoods.
“On weekends the parking triples, and there is constant traffic. It just keeps going,” said Hagood. “We’re 50 feet away. In nice weather, you can hear almost everybody.”
Managers of the complex have decided to reach out by hosting an open house from 5 to 6 p.m. Monday in the complex’s leasing office.
On hand will be Officer Joel Goodwin of the Corvallis Police Department.
“We wanted to invite residents in to see what our property is all about,” said Alexandria Brooks, 7th Street Station’s resident services manager.
“We all want to be sure we are being good neighbors. It’s our first open house. We had planned to do it before we opened, but there wasn’t an opportunity.
“So we just decided to go ahead and do it. We want to make sure we are working with the community.”
