EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County leaders are reaching out to the public to weigh in on what they would like to see in a new courthouse.

During the May 2019 special election, more than 58% of voters shot down a bond measure that would have paid for part of the cost of building a new courthouse on the corner of 8th Avenue between Pearl and High streets.

Now, the county is trying to gauge what residents think about the need for a new courthouse.

If you want to weigh in, you can take an online survey. And the county is also allowing community groups to book speakers about the courthouse and arrange tours of the existing building, which opened in 1959. 

Lane County spokesperson Devon Ashbridge said the state will match nearly $100 million in funding if voters approve the project. She said the state will hold onto that funding up until the start of the next general session in 2021.
