The university’s new collaboration with the city will help OSU alleviate neighborhood livability concerns, says spokesman Todd Simmons. “There is a different engagement between city staff and university staff that we hope is easing tensions,” he says, adding the university also wants to build at least one new residence hall over the next few years.

Despite uncertainties, public and private sector leaders are confident the city will rise to the occasion. “Corvallis is a little jewel,” says Pat Lampton, owner of Inkwell, a downtown home store. “There’s just a new reality that the economy is something we need to pay attention to that had been sidelined before.”
