ITEMS FROM MAYOR AND COUNCIL, APPOINTMENTS, ANNOUNCEMENT, AND AGENDA <br />ADJUSTMENTS <br /> <br />A. Appointment to the Downtown Commission <br /> <br />Ms. Nichols moved, seconded by Mr. Obie, to appoint Stephanie <br />Pearl, 1190 Washington Street, to fill the vacant position on <br />the Downtown Commission; term to expire December 30, 1987. <br /> <br />Councilor Obie said he appreciated Ms. Nichols motion, stating that it was an <br />issue that the council should quickly resolve. He said he was disappointed <br />with the situation in which Mr. Fraser found himself, stating that his decision <br />to withdraw his name from the appointment was the community's loss. However, <br />he said the council recognized the ability and potential that Ms. Pearl would <br />bring to the Downtown Commission. He stressed the need to create a friendly <br />environment for those individuals who wished to serve the City. Councilor <br />Holmer said he would support the motion, but he wished to stress that <br />Ms. Pearl's appointment would broaden the representation of the Downtown <br />Commission in only one dimension. He said the council had a responsibility to <br />think more broadly in terms of representation to involve a true cross section <br />of the community and to live up to the affirmative action policy adopted by <br />the council. <br /> <br />The motion carried unanimously, 7:0. <br /> <br />B.

Mr. Hansen agreed that <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />May 9, 1984 <br /> <br />Page 1 <br />
