COMMITTEE REPORTS AND ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM MAYOR, CITY <br />COUNCIL AND CITY MANAGER <br /> <br />Her Honor Mayor Kitty Piercy called the meeting of the Eugene City Council to order. She noted that Mr. <br />Papé was unable to attend the meeting and Mr. Poling would be late. <br /> <br />Mayor Piercy said the opening of RiverPlay Playground at Skinner Butte Park was an excellent example of <br />how unique play opportunities and education about the area’s history could be accomplished at the same <br />time. She welcomed a visiting group of teachers of the gifted from Korea and also said she attended the <br />dedication of the Slocum Orthopedic Center, which was going to be a state-of-the-art example of both health <br />care and sustainable building practices. She acknowledged an award to the law enforcement volunteer <br />program and the significant growth of that program over the past few years. <br /> <br />Ms. Ortiz commended the webcast of council meetings on the City’s website. She noted that the council’s <br />Communities of Color meeting on July 12 would be held at the Eugene Police and Fire Training Center on <br />nd <br />2 Avenue instead of the McNutt Room. She remarked that Lane County Public Health reconfigured its <br />services and located reproductive health services in Springfield. She was concerned that those services <br />would not be accessible to Eugene residents and would discuss the matter with the County. <br /> <br />Mr. Pryor reported that the Human Services Commission continued its discussion of creating a new entity to <br />manage commission activities and providing health services. He said it would take at least a year to develop <br />a model. <br /> <br />Ms. Bettman reported on her tour of Green Island with the various entities involved in restoration efforts. <br />She was uncertain of the City’s role in that effort. <br /> <br />Mr. Kelly reported that the Region 2050 policy board met and voted unanimously to submit the draft growth <br />management strategy to public review and review by local elected bodies. He noted the council was <br />scheduled to discuss the strategy at an August 14, 2006, work session and the strategy would be available <br />shortly on the Lane Council of Government (LCOG) website. He hoped for council direction on the strategy <br />prior to the next Region 2050 meeting. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />MINUTES—Eugene City Council July 10, 2006 Page 1 <br /> Work Session <br /> <br /> <br />
