CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — The city of Corvallis is considering a recommendation to ban Oregon State freshmen from bringing cars to campus.

The Collaboration Corvallis panel will meet Tuesday to discuss the idea of the ban, which is in effect at other universities campuses around the country.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports (http://bit.ly/13Zg7xq ) the panel will also consider remote parking lots for students and a possible parking shuttle system for football game days.

Enrollment growth at the school is driving such considerations. The student population reached nearly 25,000 in 2012, a 5.7 percent increase over 2011.

All panel recommendations must go to the Corvallis City Council and OSU leadership for final approval.
