‘Outcrop’ neighborhood to include 16 homes on five of the school’s 49 acres

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — The first home of Central Oregon Community College’s Campus Village is set to break ground at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, kicking off the development of the college’s 49-acre property on the corner of Northwest Shevlin Park Road and Mt. Washington Drive.

The initial phase of the Outcrop neighborhood — named for a preserved section of basalt outcroppings on the east border of the lots — will be made up of 16 single-family homes, many with accessory dwelling units.

The new subdivision will occupy a 12-acre parcel on the southwest side of the Campus Village. COCC will retain ownership of the land and lease the ground to the homeowners.

An initial proposal in 2016, which featured apartments, drew concern from neighbors in Valhalla Heights. COCC spokesman Ron Paradis also noted Monday there had been meetings with the neighbors and community since then.

William Smith Properties Inc., the Bend-based development group behind the Old Mill District and the Les Schwab Amphitheater, is the project’s master developer. Curtis Homes, with prior experience in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing, Tetherow and Aubrey Butte neighborhoods, is the homebuilder.

The construction of Outcrop’s first 16 homes will take place on approximately five acres. Additional residences will likely be built on the remaining seven acres, once sales of the first phase of homes are complete.
