<br />e <br /> <br />E. Councilor Schue's and Councilor Holmer's Nominations to the Budget <br />Committee <br /> <br />F. Call for Public Hearing: Initiation of Street and Alley Vacation <br />(Eugene Water and Electric Board) (SV 89-3) <br /> <br />Mr. Rutan requested that the minutes from October 20, 1989, be amended to <br />reflect council's agreement to a six-month leave of absence with a 90-day <br />review after which time he was to return to the council with an evaluation of <br />the agreement. <br /> <br />Mr. Bennett moved, seconded by Mr. Holmer, to approve the <br />items on the City Council Consent Calendar as amended. Roll <br />call vote; the motion carried unanimously, 7:0. <br /> <br />II. PUBLIC HEARING: RESOLUTION REGARDING RENEWAL OF LIMITED RECOGNITION <br />POLICY FOR NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATIONS <br /> <br />e <br /> <br />City Manager Micheal Gleason introduced the topic. Christine Donahue, <br />Planning and Development Department, said that this resolution will allow the <br />Glenwood, River Road, and Santa Clara community organizations to continue as <br />officially recognized Eugene neighborhood organizations and will allow other <br />neighborhood groups and community organizations to seek limited recognition <br />by the City. Ms. Donahue said that the Industrial Corridor Community <br />Organization has also expressed interest in Eugene's neighborhood recognition <br />process. <br /> <br />Mr. Bennett expressed concern that this proposal as it is currently worded <br />makes it possible for other community organizations to seek limited <br />recognition by the City. Ms. Donahue said that although this resolution <br />would allow other groups to request limited recognition by the City, any <br />group requesting limited recognition would need to follow the requirements <br />for limited recognition as outlined in the Neighborhood Organization <br />Recognition Policy. <br /> <br />Mayor Miller opened the public hearing. <br /> <br />Jerry Finigan, 1250 Irvington Drive, President of the Santa Clara Community <br />Organization, spoke in favor of the proposed resolution. He stated that this <br />resolution recognizes that annexation is a two-way process and that Santa <br />Clara is an active and important part of the City of Eugene. He added that <br />he hopes the wording of the resolution does not preclude the possibility of <br />full recognition in the event that an annexation vote succeeds. <br /> <br />Mr. Bennett asked Mr. Finigan whether he believed that the Santa Clara <br />Community Organization represents the views of the majority of citizens in <br />that area. Mr. Finigan said he believes that the views expressed by this <br />organization are consistent with those of the represented community. <br /> <br />e <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />January 22, 1990 <br /> <br />Page 2 <br />
