1.  ADJUSTMENTS TO THE AGENDA

None.

2.  PUBLIC COMMENTS

Bob Buckner, Eugene, stated that he wanted to see options instead of turning the greenway into a housing project.  He stated in the future he wants to have an open dialogue.  He thought that there could be land swaps for others projects.  He indicated that this is along the river and it is more valuable as agriculture.  He wanted to work with the neighborhood in the upcoming weeks.

Carl Roach, Eugene, indicated that he is associated with a group called Greenway Neighbors.  He reported that over the past two years they have been active in the city regarding changes along River Road.  He said they always supported the greenway area, the area where the HACSA project is proposed.  He asked on behalf of the Greenway Neighbors to accept input as they develop the use of HACSA.  He said they are concerned because the neighborhood involved is residential and is very quiet.  He commented that they see a challenge from high density construction from HACSA.

3.  COMMISSIONERS' RESPONSE TO PUBLIC COMMENTS AND/OR OTHER ISSUES AND REMONSTRANCE

Dwyer asked Roach what he meant by high density.

Roach thought over 100 units was high density.  He indicated the average property in the area is a third to one-half acre.

Handy commented that people have to understand the world has changed.  He said that they need to garden and grow their own food in urban settings.  He said the goals for density have to be done appropriately with a mix of green space.
