12 noon — 1:15, February 14, 2011
Banquet Room, The Renaissance Building
136 SW Washington St., Corvallis
Tom Scheuremann, Director, University Housing and Dining Services, Oregon State University
Bob Loewen, Housing Division, City of Corvallis
Rentals and owner-occupied residences can co-exist peacefully in the same neighborhood, but in college towns across the country, relations can be strained. As Oregon State University continues to grow, Corvallis residents are likely to have new rental developments as neighbors, and competition for available rental space will increase. Maintaining the city’s safety and quality of life will require a planned approach to building positive relations among full-time residents, student renters and landlords.
At the February 14 Corvallis City Club meeting, Tom Scheuermann and Bob Loewen will discuss legal requirements, current and anticipated residential facilities and services at OSU and in Corvallis, and housing standards and programs aimed at maintaining positive neighborhood relations. They will address issues such as parking, rental housing quality and landlord obligations, as well as the importance of a planned and collaborative approach to these issues. (Note: Corvallis City Club will address broader issues regarding land use, traffic and commercial development in a future session)
Attendance is free to the public. Lunch is $8 for City Club members and $10 for non-members. To register, send e-mail to Nick Houtman, City Club president, firstname.lastname@example.org, with City Club Feb. 14 in the subject line. Indicate whether or not you will have lunch at the meeting.
