<br /> e M I NUT E S <br /> Eugene City Council <br /> McNutt Room--City Hall <br /> October 25, 1989 <br /> 11:30 a.m. <br /> COUNCILORS PRESENT: Ruth Bascom, Roger Rutan, Rob Bennett, Shawn Boles, <br /> Emily Schue, Debra Ehrman, Freeman Holmer, Bobby <br /> Green. <br /> The adjourned meeting of October 23, 1989, of the Eugene City Council was <br /> called to order by His Honor Mayor Jeff Miller. <br /> I. ITEMS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL, MAYOR, AND CITY MANAGER <br /> This item was not covered. <br /> II. WORK SESSION: URBAN RENEWAL PLAN UPDATE <br /> Abe Farkas, Planning and Development Director, reminded the council that this <br /> e is an update to the 1968 Urban Renewal Plan. The goal of the update is to <br /> change the plan to correspond with changes that have been made with respect <br /> to urban renewal since 1968. The State has taken the responsibility for <br /> urban renewal from the Federal government. <br /> 11th WILLAMETTE DEVELOPMENT <br /> Bob Hibschman, Planning and Development Department, reported on the 11th <br /> Willamette Project. Mr. Hibschman noted that the concept of this project is <br /> for a mixed-use housing/commercial development project. <br /> Referring to a point in Mr. Hibschman's presentation, Mr. Holmer questioned <br /> whether an agreement has been reached on the negotiation of the parking loan. <br /> It was Mr. Holmer's understanding that the parking cost was supposed to be <br /> the developer's responsibility. Mr. Hibschman responded that because this is <br /> predominantly a housing project, it is possible that the project will receive <br /> some financial assistance for parking. No assumptions are being made to this <br /> effect, however. <br /> Responding to a question from Mr. Boles, Mr. Hibschman said that the terms of <br /> the loan could be similar to those of the loan for the previous developer. <br /> Mr. Boles encouraged the council to consider diverse options with respect to <br /> these projects in an effort to increase alternative modes in the downtown <br /> area. <br /> e MINUTES--Eugene City Council October 25, 1989 Page 1 <br />
