Save Civic Stadium

Update

The Eugene School District voted 6-1 on Wednesday to give the City a chance to preserve Civic Stadium. The catch is that the city now has 6 months to find a development partner that can commit $3 million to an operating and maintenance fund. The most likely partner is the Friends of Civic Stadium. If you'd like to help them meet their fundraising goal, they have an escrow account you can donate to. If they reach $3 million, your money will be used to secure the stadium for professional soccer. If they do not, your money will be returned to you.

Original Post

The Eugene School District will determine on Wednesday February 19th to whom to sell Civic Stadium to. The three bids are: Fred Meyer, YMCA, and the City of Eugene. The first two want to demolish the historic stadium, while the City wants to find a development partner to refurbish the stadium for community use and Professional Soccer!

The Professional Soccer team would most likely be Lane United. If you want to see a local rival for our USL-Pro affiliate or for Eugene to be that USL-Pro affiliate, the fastest way for that to happen is for Civic Stadium to be preserved.

Please, if you are a Eugene resident or a Eugene School District graduate, contact the board and let them know of your support. To contact the Eugene School Board, please send your email to: board@4j.lane.edu

Here's a full story from the Register Guard about the stadium.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
