Eugene to Host City Hall Public Forum

EUGENE, Ore. — If you’d like to offer input into the new Eugene City Hall, you can.

The first part of the forum is from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. at the Atrium lobby. Then at 7:30 p.m., public input will be taken at the regular city council meeting at Harris Hall.

The city council is considering three options. The first, renovate the current facilities. The second is rebuild at the current sight. And the third is to move into the EWEB building on 4th Avenue. All of these options come with about a $15 million price tag.

“It’s been a long planning process. It’s gone through several iterations. This last time we have a realistic budget and realistic goals, and I really think we are going to move forward,” said Mike Penwell, Facilities Design Construction Manager for the City of Eugene.

At the 7:30 p.m. meeting, speakers will be allowed three minutes each to speak.

If you can’t make it to the meeting, you can submit your comments to the mayor and city council by email.

The council will have a work session on Wednesday where it will review the public input and a site could be chosen then.
