4J School Board Talks Civic Proposals

EUGENE, Ore. — Just a day after the deadline for the Civic Stadium proposals, the plans are laid out in front of the 4J School Board.

Each of the four proposals to acquire Civic were detailed to board members. Of the four groups, two want to redevelop the property. That would mean tearing down the old ballpark.

The Eugene Family YMCA’s proposing a new facility. A group headed by Fred Meyer would build a retail store.

The city of Eugene and Friends of Civic Stadium want to save the park for community use.

4J Board members say they have yet to take an in-depth look at the proposals, but over the coming months they will use a scoring system to decide which works best.

“As we proceed, we’ll learn more about the proposals,” said Mary Walston, 4J School Board Chair. “We will learn what they actually mean, when this will actually move forward, but I’m firmly of the belief that the district and the board will come to a decision”

Walston says a decision could come in March. Some of the criteria on the scoring including revenue and community benefit.
