A TRAVESTY AND A WASTE
The direction our public officials are taking is the worst mistake made since the 1970s Urban Renewal Renovation of downtown Eugene.
The unfortunate direction on the table will outweigh the 40-year scars of urban renewal.
• Wasting the existing City Hall building, discarding at least $40 million of equity, spending $11 million to replace it with a smaller version. Total: $51 million.
• Leasing space at $1.2 million a year for 10 years ($12 million) to support developers. Total: $63 million.
