EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene City Council met once again on Wednesday to discuss the future of its former home. During the work session, the design committee laid out the concept and timeline for rebuilding the old city hall on 8th and Oak.
Construction is slated to get started sometime late next year. While some councilors say the process is taking too long, others feel if the time is needed to get things right, they should take it.
City Councilor Chris Pryor said, “We don’t get the chance to make a mistake, because whatever mistake we make will be memorialized in concrete and I don’t want to do that.”
The price of construction was also discussed. The current cost is $15 million, of which the city currently only has ten. Staff members are still working on getting one time funds to get make up for the rest.
