Eugene board rejects Civic Stadium proposals
Wednesday, June 1, 2011
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- The Eugene School Board voted Wednesday to reject all three proposals for Civic Stadium and to start over in its search for a buyer or tenant for the historic property.
The Register-Guard newspaper reports that proposals included a shopping center development, new recreation center and renovating the ballpark.
The shopping center proposal would have brought the district the most money but was opposed by many residents who want to save the stadium.
