The Lane County Board of Commissioners and Eugene City Council have agreed to a land swap. The agreement will provide for a site for a new County Courthouse on the former City Hall Site. The New City Hall will be built on the current Butterfly parking lot at 8th and Oak downtown.
Lane County Commissioners received 29 applications from people interested in the East Lane board seat left open by Faye Stewart. Of those, 27 meet minimum qualifications. Commissioners will hear from each candidate in 5 minute interviews on Wednesday.
By a 4-1 vote, the Lane County Board of Commissioners has tentatively approved an application for a quarry development near Oakridge. As KLCC’s Brian Bull reports, some locals are upset over the project.
