Commissioner Steve Cornacchia presided with Commissioners Ellie Dumdi, Bobby Green, Sr., Peter Sorenson and Cindy Weeldreyer present. County Administrator Bill Van Vactor, County Counsel Teresa Wilson and Recording Secretary Melissa Zimmer were also present.




a. ORDER 98-12-2-1H Authorizing the Acquisition of Approximately 3.72 Acres (17-04-25-12TL 1000) Located on River Road in Eugene, Oregon and (2) Executing a Purchase Option Agreement for Approximately .27 Acres (17-24-25-12 TL 1100) Located on River Road in Eugene, Oregon.

Jim McCoy, HACSA, introduced two members of the Preliminary Development Team on the parcel, Clayton Walker (the broker) and Fred Scelese, (representing HACSA on the environmental issues). He stated they are asking the Board for authorization to proceed with an acquisition and site control of the parcel that is in the River Road area of Eugene. He added the parcel is in two tax lots and they are asking for authorization to proceed with the purchase of the larger tax lot that is around 3 3/4 acres. He said he is asking for authorization for the smaller tax lot to enter into an option agreement until the seller can go ahead and get formal clearance from the State Department of Environmental Quality. He added there are formal procedures that have to be completed to see whether or not the site was clean and would in fact obtain clearance from the DEQ. He said they still want to make sure they get the formal governmental clearance. He said with regard to the financing of the acquisition, the Enterprise Foundation (partners in all tax credit projects to date) has offered to provide a low interest line of credit for predevelopment expenses. He said they would use that until they can bring in other subsidies from the City of Eugene and State of Oregon that would take place in 1999 or 2000.
