<br />e <br /> <br />D. Nuclear-Free Zone <br /> <br />Regarding the recent news article about Rohr Industry's concern with respect <br />to the nuclear-free zone, Mr. Boles commented that he hopes that Rohr, as a <br />potential community resident, has been apprised of and is comfortable with <br />the City's strong position toward a nuclear-free zone. Mr. Bennett said that <br />the Rohr group has been informed that its industry is in compliance with the <br />nuclear-free zone provision, but there is continued concern that the <br />subjective nature of this regulatory ordinance leaves room for problematic <br />interpretation. Mr. Bennett stressed that such concern prevents the City <br />from attracting the type of jobs this community is seeking. Mr. Miller <br />pointed out that Rohr's concern also revolves around timing issues; Rohr <br />wants some assurance that the City will keep its commitments and that it <br />welcomes the type of industry that Rohr can provide. Mr. Boles said he will <br />meet with John Lively of the Metro Partnership to find out whether similar <br />concerns have recently been addressed by other communities and how they have <br />dealt with them. <br /> <br />E. Fairground Concerns <br /> <br />In meeting with the Westside and Far West Neighborhood groups, Ms. Ehrman <br />said that the addition of the new skating facility at the Lane County <br />Fairground has heightened community concerns surrounding such issues as the <br />dust created from the unpaved parking lot and major ingress/egress problems. <br /> <br />e <br /> <br />F. Horseshoe Pitching <br /> <br />Ms. Bascom informed the council that a local group of horseshoe pitchers gave <br />a presentation to the Joint Parks Committee at its January 17 meeting. She <br />indicated that this group is partially responsible for development of the <br />facility under Washington/Jefferson Bridge and should serve as an example of <br />the type of exemplary volunteer effort that is appreciated in this community. <br /> <br />G. Martin Luther King Junior Celebration <br /> <br />Mr. Green commended staff for their efforts at making the Martin Luther King <br />Junior Day celebration a tremendous success. He acknowledged Greg Rikhoff <br />and Vicki Stewart, Intergovernmental Relations, for their work associated <br />with the Commission on the Rights of Minorities. Ms. Bascom echoed Mr. <br />Green's commendation. <br /> <br />H. Eugene Arts Foundation <br /> <br />Mr. Holmer reminded the council that in its work session on January 22 it <br />will be discussing the issue of funding for the arts in our community at <br />which time he will share a report from the Eugene Arts Foundation (EAF). In <br />addition to the endowment funds that EAF currently grants, it is starting a <br />new program called Arts Stabilization Funding with the goal of helping local <br />performing arts groups adopt a more rational financing structure. <br /> <br />e <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />January 17, 1990 <br /> <br />Page 2 <br />
