EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene School Board will discuss selling up to seven acres of the Roosevelt Middle School property to the Eugene Family YMCA for the construction of new YMCA recreation facility.
4J is planning to replace Roosevelt Middle School by constructing a new school west of the current building. Once the older building is removed, 4J could convert the area to soccer fields or offer up to 7 acres to the YMCA.
4J will discuss the potential property sale at its meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 7. The school board will also get an update on the design for a new school building. A public hearing will take place on May 21 at 200 N. Monroe St.
The board is tentatively scheduled to make a decision on the property by June 4. The terms of any sale would then be negotiated and eventually approved by the board at a later date.
Under district policy, the board could choose to sell the property to the YMCA if the board determines that there would be a significant benefit to students and the community.
