EUGENE, Ore. - There will be a public hearing for the proposed Downtown Riverfront property redevelopment at the Eugene City Council meeting Monday, where community members can voice their opinions about the project.
The City is looking to redevelop 16-acres of land near EWEB's headquarters to give people easier access to it. City officials said they wanted to turn the currently vacant, concrete lot into a vibrant space for the community that will directly connect the downtown and campus areas to the Willamette River.
The city bought the land from EWEB last April.
The space will consist of a four-acre park, housing, a hotel, retail stores and restaurants. They also have plans to reuse the iconic steam plant.
Construction could start as early as next year, and city officials said they hope to have the park and plaza done by 2021.
The public hearing will be held Monday, beginning at 7:30 at Harris Hall.
