RG16.4 welcome to town, Mr. Ruiz

April 14th, 2008 by dk

Tonight (Monday), Eugene City Council will meet to decide between neighborhood-friendly narrow streets and bicycle-friendly bike lanes in the Crest Avenue area. Unless there’s a rip in the space-time continuum, one of these laudable goals will be denied tonight, at our new city manager’s first public meeting. Tomorrow, the Planning Commission takes up some of Hugh Prichard’s suggested changes for the city’s Downtown Development Code. Wednesday evening, there will be two contentious meetings to choose from. The Fairmount Neighbors will be meeting to discuss the university’s plans for a basketball arena and how the effects of that development will be mitigated for the neighborhood. And the city is also holding an open house to discuss changes they have contemplated for the short stretch of Willamette Street that remains one way: from 18th to 20th Avenues. When it comes to flashpoint controversies, we’re a Top-40 station, “where the hits just keep on comin’!” Welcome to town, Mr. Ruiz.
