<br /> M I NUT E S <br />- EUGENE CITY COUNCIL <br /> August 28, 1978 <br /> Adjourned meeting from August 23, 1978, of the City Council of the City of <br /> Eugene, Oregon, was called to order by His Honor Mayor Gus Keller at 7:30 p.m. <br /> on August 28, 1978, in the Council Chambers, with the following Council <br /> members present: D. W. Hamel, Ray Bradley, Tom Williams, Eric Haws, Jack <br /> Delay, Brian Obie, and Betty Smith. Councilor Scott Lieuallen was absent. <br /> I. PUBLIC HEARINGS <br /> A. Selection of Architect for Civic Center Phase II--Manager announced <br /> that, as a result of deliberations on Saturday, August 26, finalists <br /> were selected for the architect for the Civic Center Phase II project. <br /> A motion outlining the result of those deliberations has been distri- <br /> buted to Council members. <br /> Dean Baumgartner, Civic Center Director, announced the vote at the <br /> August 26 session. Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates of New York was <br /> first with 181 points; Sprankle, Lynd and Sprague placed second with <br /> 163 points; Zimmer Gunsul Frasca partnership was third with 152 <br /> points. Placing fourth and fifth were the WEGROUP of Eugene and <br /> Skidmore Owens and Merrill of Portland. Mr. Baumgartner strongly <br />- recommmended that Council select the first place choice. He said they <br /> have been responsible for many successful projects around the nation, <br /> among them a new concert hall in Denver which is receiving wide <br /> acclaim. He believes the City of Eugene can anticipate a superior <br /> facil i ty. <br /> Public hearing was held with no testimony presented. <br /> Mr. Hamel moved, seconded by Mr. Bradley, to accept the recommen- <br /> dations of the Joint Committee, and authorize staff to enter into <br /> the contract for architectural and related services for Phase II <br /> of the Civic Center project with Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer, 257 Park <br /> Avenue South, New York, New York. Motion carried, all Council <br /> members voting aye except Mr. Haws voting no. <br /> Mr. Haws wondered if staff would come back to Council for approval on <br /> the contract provisions. Manager responded that, if Council so <br /> wishes, that will be done; however, that was not the intention. Ms. <br /> Smith suggested that a thank you letter be sent to consultant Scott <br /> for all of the fine work he did. Mr. Bradley wondered if the Council <br /> would have any input into the selection of a local architect to assist <br /> on the project. Mr. Keller did not see any reason for the Council to <br /> be involved in that process, with which Mr. Delay concurred. Dean <br /> Baumgartner commented that Council had received the right to approve <br />e <br /> 8/28/78--1 <br /> 51'1 <br />
