ITEMS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL, MAYOR, AND CITY MANAGER <br /> <br />A. West University Small Business Association <br /> <br />Ms. Ehrman indicated that recent discussions of the West University Small <br />Business Association have centered around the sharp increase in drug <br />trafficking activity recently evident in the university area near a recently <br />erected wall on Kincaid Street. One solution posed for this problem was to <br />declare this area a special district, similar to the Eugene Mall, and allow <br />it to be governed by its own set of rules. Ms. Ehrman requested that staff <br />look into the feasibility of this proposition. <br /> <br />Ms. Ehrman noted that litter is also a major concern in the university area. <br />Greg Zahar, Department of Public Safety, has suggested that the Public Works <br />Department consider the possibility of affixing litter containers to the <br />traffic meters to help solve this problem. Ms. Ehrman requested a report <br />from staff regarding this proposal. <br /> <br />B. Return of the Grateful Dead <br /> <br />Ms. Ehrman indicated that the upcoming Grateful Dead concert has generated <br />concern in the community. Specific concerns have centered around the <br />increase in unfavorable activities which often occurs concurrent with the <br />arrival of Grateful Dead followers. She noted that the University of <br />California at Berkeley has banned Grateful Dead concert appearances entirely <br />because of the problems associated with them. She requested a report from <br />staff on the increase in actual public safety costs which are associated with <br />this concert. <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />May 16~ 1990 <br /> <br />Page 1 <br />
