City Club of Eugene is getting a new venue starting with its Jan. 10 meeting. We wrote about a City Club survey of its members in this column back on Sept. 19, and one of the preliminary top three favorites for a meeting place was the Downtown Athletic Club. Looks like the DAC beat out the Hilton and LCC Downtown Campus in the final selection, offering a “wider set of food options and price points, as well as a lower guarantee for the club,” according to the club’s website. “That means more members may find a lunch that works for them, and we will take in enough to pay for the space.” The club has mostly been in the Hilton in recent years, but has used other venues in the past, including the DAC and LCC. 

Springfield is now in the process of developing its Capital Improvement Program (CIP), a Community Reinvestment Plan, for the next five years and is seeking suggestions from Springfield residents and businesses for capital improvement projects. Examples include construction of streets, sewers, sidewalks, bike paths, streetlights and street trees. Deadline for suggestions is Friday, Dec. 6, and a form can be downloaded from the city’s website or picked up at Public Works at City Hall.
