I am one of the majority of Eugene citizens who opposes a new city hall, but I don’t have my mind made up. There are some data points that would help me decide. Will somebody answer these questions for me? When the current city hall was built, how long were citizens told they could expect it to last? How large was city staff at the time, in real numbers and in proportion to the population of the city? What do those numbers look like today? Next, compare the square footage of that facility and the proposed replacement. If our population has quadrupled since it was built, will the new facility be four times the size of the old? I fear that government is slowly expanding, in staff and in square footage, faster than the population. This is a tangible measure to test whether that’s so.
