City Explores Purchase Of Civic Stadium

EUGENE, Ore. — Some Eugene city leaders stated their intent Monday night to save Civic Stadium.

Councilors directed the Eugene City Manager to explore the options to buy or lease the historic piece of property from the 4J School District.

The district recently requested bids to buy the land.

Councilors say money for this acquisition could come from a park bond or somewhere else, but councilors also stressed this is just the beginning of the process.

Councilors Pryor and Clark were against the move.

    buy it for WHAT REASON?
    to ease your conscience?
    NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

    STATE THE REASON FOR THE PURCHASE AND HOW EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY WOULD DIRECTLY AND POSITIVELY BENEFIT FROM THE COLOSSAL WASTE OF TAX DOLLARS.

    4J should say no, just like they did to the developer who wanted to hand them buckets of cash.

    I thought the city didn’t have any money. Wasn’t that what the most recent tax ballot was about? Why does the city want more property? More tax breaks for developers? Kickbacks!

    I think 4J should sell it to the highest bidder and be done with it. This is a business deal and the schools need money. They are making a big profit off the deal. I believe they bought it for a dollar from the city. It is nothing but a money pit.
