The two staff members have developed a plan for the <br />museum compl ex. It call s for formati on of two additional boards. A statewi de <br />board will be formed to lend technical assistance and advice for attracting <br />private collections to the State Museum of Natural History. It will also <br />lobby in the legislature to get the museum funded. <br /> <br />Ms. Daly said the current Lane County Historical Museum is inadequate because <br />of space and climate control. They anticipate forming a board appointed by <br />the CMC to implement the building of a new historical museum. A time line <br />is being developed by the Cooperative Museum Commission. In November the <br />Cooperative Museum Commission agreed to take over the administration of the <br />Lane County Museum from Lane County. A curator has just been hired. The <br />curator of special collections is currently working on the well-used library. <br />A traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Exhibit in Washington, D.C., will be <br />at WISTEC February through April 1985. It is entitl ed "Yesterday's Tomorrows". <br />The museum has appl i ed for a grant to develop an exhibit call ed "Made in <br />Oregon", an exhibit of handmade old and new furniture. Ms. Daly is active in <br />the development of the Culture and Leisure Plan. She noted that tourists are <br />attracted to the city by museums. <br /> <br />The City representative to the Cooperative Museum Commission, Tom Hoyt, was <br />introduced. He brought up the issue of the museum's location. He asked council <br />members to affirm their desire to locate in the Alton Baker Park location. All <br />councilors present said individually that they supported the planned location. <br />Their reasons were: the first phase is complete and it is late to change <br />directions; the park is a good place for a museum complex; the state museum has <br />been planned and state legislation mentions the present location. <br /> <br />'. <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council Dinner Session <br /> <br />February 13, 1984 <br /> <br />Page 1 <br />
