<br />M I N U T E S <br /> <br /> <br />Eugene City Council <br />Work Shop/Work Session <br />McNutt Room—Eugene City Hall <br /> <br /> July 12, 2006 <br /> 3 p.m. <br /> <br />COUNCILORS PRESENT: Jennifer Solomon, Andrea Ortiz, Bonny Bettman, David Kelly, Gary <br />Papé, George Poling, Chris Pryor, Betty Taylor. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />A. WORKSHOP: Facilitated Dialogue with Communities of Color <br /> <br />The council was joined by representatives of the Communities of Color for a facilitated dialogue. <br /> <br /> <br />B. WORK SESSION: Collaborative Process to Identify a Transportation Solution for West <br />Eugene and the FY06-09 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program <br /> <br />Her Honor Mayor Kitty Piercy reconvened the meeting of the Eugene City Council. She recognized Mr. <br />Papé for a motion. <br /> <br />Mr. Papé thanked the mayor and council for agreeing to schedule the session. He indicated his intent to <br />offer the council a motion that would give the council’s representatives to the Metropolitan Policy <br />Committee more flexibility with regard to the City’s position on the Metropolitan Transportation Improve- <br />ment Program (MTIP). <br /> <br />Mr. Papé, seconded by Ms. Solomon, moved to (a) rescind the council’s May 24 approval <br />of the motion giving direction to the council’s MPC representatives and (b) request the <br />mayor and City Manager schedule a work session in the fall to discuss a process to design <br />and build transportation projects in west Eugene. <br /> <br />Mr. Kelly expressed appreciation to Mr. Papé for his interest in giving himself and the mayor more <br />flexibility at the MPC meeting, but said his desire was the opposite: he wished to ensure that they went to <br />the meeting with very clear direction from a council majority. He agreed with two points in the motion, but <br />felt more was needed, particularly in light of the fact that County Commissioner Bobby Green intended to <br />offer the MPC a motion to retain the West Eugene Parkway in the MTIP. He offered the following <br />substitute motion: <br /> <br />Mr. Kelly, seconded by Ms. Bettman, moved that, as a result of the Oregon Department of <br />Transportation’s recent refusal to participate in the collaborative process as outlined in the <br />City Council’s May 24, 2006, motion supporting a draft resolution for the MPC, that the <br />City Council: <br /> <br />1. Rescinds its May 24, 2006, motion regarding the MPC resolution; <br /> <br /> <br />MINUTES—Eugene City Council July 12, 2006 Page 1 <br /> Work Shop/Work Session <br /> <br />
