EUGENE, Ore. -- In reaction to the homeless camp controversy in downtown Eugene, Lane County Commissioners could soon pass a curfew for the "Butterfly Lot." They're considering what they're calling an emergency ordinance.

The county is considering a curfew for the area from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The proposed ordinance declares an emergency and gives the board of commissioners "its police power for the purpose of meeting such an emergency, and for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety."

According to the proposal, this curfew would match the one already adopted by the board of commissioners for the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza.

County commissioners are discussing the Butterfly Lot's potential curfew at their meeting Tuesday at 9 a.m.
