'-" - '''-' <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />A. ~ Growth Study - Copies of resolution prepared by Council members Beal and Murray ~ <br />,were previously distributed with regard to initiation of a study of population <br />!growth in the metropolitan area. Mr. Murray said the resolution presented was <br />, based on the general topic and issue of greatest concern to th~ 1974 Community <br />iGoals Conference. It was voted the highest priority by the Conference. The resolu- <br />! tion called for joint sponsorship by Lane County" Springfield, and Eugene of a study', <br />I to develop and recommend alternative growth policies and mechanisms with sufficient <br />I funding and staff to provide adequate analysis of (1) existing growth studies, <br />e. : (2) methods .of control, (3) ,interrelationship ~etw~en economic viability, environ- <br />'mental qual~ty, and populat~on growth, (4) soc~al ~mpact of growth, and (5) cost/ <br />jbenefits of growth. Mr. Murray considered regional metropolitan co-operation <br />!critical to Success of such a study. He said the resolution had been presented <br />ito the Springfield City Council so he felt there was a rare opportunity for a <br />1productive outcome from a partnership between the two cities and Lane County. : <br />, i <br /> <br />" Mr. Murray moved seconded by Mr. McDonaJd to accept the resolution. <br /> <br />!Councilman Williams expressed agreement with much of the resolution presented and \ <br />thought that it did essentially correspond to statements !esulting from the Goals \ <br />Conference. However, he noted addition of designation of the Metropolitan Area <br />, <br />IPlanning Advisory Committee for conduct of the study and he was not sure that was : <br />,the proper body to do the work. He said that in discussion with Betty Niven, who I <br />rhaired the Goals Conference, she had raised the same question. Mr. Williams thought; <br />isome discussion should be held with MAPAC first to determine whether that group felt: <br />' . I <br />' :i t was the one to make the study. i <br />, <br /> <br />!Councilman Murray said he w6uld welcome formal discussion with MAPAC. He felt the <br />lGoals Conference had been vague with regard to who would conduct the study. How- <br />I , <br />~ jever, MAPAC was considered the logical choice, he said, because the membership com- <br />4IIt Iprised representatives of the three governmental agencies which would be involved. , <br />,Mr. Murray added that one of the greatest concerns was sufficiency of staff to com- 1 <br />plete the work and that was ,addressed' in this resolution by caLU;,g for sufficient I <br />funding and staff ta prav,ide "adequate" analysis. He noted previous'discussion with \ <br />'regard to the increasing amount of overlapping and proliferation of citizens commit- ! <br />tees and whether th~ quality of citizen participation depended on adequate staffing <br />to give them capacity to serve. He thought MAPAC seemed appropriate for the work. <br /> <br />..... _.._-------,.~~_.-.-- -.----_."- -- --..._---~~-_.. -_.-_. - --. ---- --- ,-_.~- "--. -.---.---- <br /> <br /> <br />9/23/74 - 1 <br />~3b <br />
