Civic Stadium is one of the few remaining wooden baseball parks in the country.
The City of Eugene says it is willing to put up park bond money on the contingency that other partners will come up with an additional $5.5 million. Mayor Kitty Piercy addressed a city council work session about this Wednesday.
“For many people in our community this has a place that has historic value to them, and so that’s why I’m saying I hear you, I’d like to [renovate and preserve Civic Stadium] too only if other partners step up and help bear the cost of this because we can’t afford it as a city,” said Kitty Piercy, Eugene Mayor.
The additional funds will be needed for renovation and upkeep.
