1. ADJUSTMENTS TO THE AGENDA

 

None.

 

2. PUBLIC COMMENTS

 

William Vencil, 86122 Needham Road, Eugene, Oregon, stated that he was here on behalf of Jim Gillette and the compliance issues surrounding his property. He explained his concern regarding the land use on Gillette’s property and the County violations. Vencil noted that since the time the County gave Gillette notice, at least 30 people have been displaced. He commented that he has been staying with friends and relatives in his 30 foot converted school bus. Vencil said that RV parks and campgrounds will not let him stay because of their regulations regarding converted buses.

 

Jim Gillette, 86340 Needam Road, Eugene, Oregon, stated that he does not want to fight with the County. He said he was of the understanding that if he moved as fast as he could on the permit process, the County would work with him. He remarked that he was shocked to learn that he was being fined as of the 11th. Gillette said the County is now asking if he has storage permits for the vehicles left behind and believes the County has singled him out. Gillette said he had believed that as long as he had applied for a primitive camping permit, they could stay. He reported that several people will now be going on welfare. Gillette explained that these living conditions have been going on for 15 years with no problem until the paintball issue.

 

George Winfield, 86122 Needam Road, Eugene, Oregon, remarked that he has lived on Needam's property for eight years in a converted school bus. He stated that he has a kidney disease and is on the verge on dialysis. Winfield explained that he has nowhere else to live and that living there has stabilized his medical condition. He commented that there is currently so much homelessness and he does not understand why the County is forcing them to be homeless.

 

Camilla Drake, 86122 Needam Road, Eugene, Oregon, distributed copies of a letter from Hershel Bloom regarding the homeless situation in the area. She said their lives are in total chaos and that they are finding themselves homeless. Drake asked what their alternative was as far as what they have grown accustomed to paying for rent. She stated that she felt they were being dictated to as far as their lifestyle and living conditions. Drake explained that there is no winning situation for them; they will be in trouble for living at Gillette's and they will be in trouble for living on the streets.

 

Bradley King, 86327 Needam Road, Eugene, Oregon, said he has lived there for seven years in an RV that he built. He remarked that he has nowhere to go or no place to move his bus. King reiterated the fact that 30-45 people will be made homeless. He stressed that he would like to see something worked out where they all could get along and stay where they are. King commented that the neighbors don’t complain anymore since traffic has ceased due to the fact the paintball has stopped.

 

Marilyn Warren, 86344 Needam Road, Eugene, Oregon, stated that she has been living behind Gillette in a mobile home and understands she may be forced out of that mobile home. She said that she takes in unwanted animals. Moore explained that she pays taxes and now she is being told she does not really exist. She said she has put a lot of money into her mobile home and her yard and is afraid that she will now lose it all.

 

Linda Brown, 86327 Needham Road, Eugene, Oregon, commented that she is up there living with two children and has been looking in the paper for a place to move. She said it is impossible to find a place she can afford and is afraid she will have to go on welfare.

 

Marcus Ratafia, 86327 Needham Road, Eugene, Oregon, commented that this is the best working community he has ever participated in. He stated he has been living in a station wagon since the 11th and has been asked to leave parks and parking lots by police. He remarked that he is self-employed and is unable to keep his business going out of his car.

 

Laural Carlson, 86327 Needham Road, Eugene, Oregon, said that she knows that Gillette has been attending County staff meetings in an attempt to resolve this problem. Carlson stated that this situation affects children. She said that rents are not affordable and that it is impossible to come up with first and last rent and then monthly rents. Carlson stressed that Oregon has to address the homeless problems as the populations of low income families will continue to grow.

 

John Welton, 23789 Warthren Road, Elmira, Oregon, said he wanted to speak on the issue of the Oregon County Fair. He said he has been told that it is here to stay and stated that, in that case, the County needs to do something about vandalism, property destruction, traffic, graffiti, trespassers, fire danger, etc. Welton suggested that to solve these problems, there is a need to have open meetings; however, he said there is also need for better communication to let residents know these meetings are going to happen.

 

Susan Pinkus, 86327 Needham Road, Eugene, Oregon, stated that she lives on Gillette’s property. She commented that the homeless population is growing and said she would like to find a way to work to revise these statutes, and would like Lane County to consider finding a way to work together.

 

Angel Groundeen, 86327 Needham Road, Eugene, Oregon, said that she began living on Gillette’s land after she became a single parent and that living there has allowed her to be a mom, student and employee. She stated that there is a community out there. Groundeen explained that when this problem with the County started, she chose to vacate her place on Gillette's property and find a place in town. However, she said things are not working out with her roommate and said she wants to be able to stay on Gillette's property. Groundeen asked that they understand and change laws and said that she has the right to live on this land.

 

Allison Voss, 1950 Parkside Drive, Eugene, Oregon, stated that she is the executive director of the Mt. Pisgah Arboretum. She explained that she is here with Board members Ann Morrow and Dr. Theodore Palmer in support of their excellent relationship with the Lane County Parks and Bob Keefer and in favor of the lease agreement. She gave a brief summary of the creation of the arboretum. She said they are here today to ask the Board to approve the revised lease agreement with one alteration: an extension of the lease length from 30 years to 50 years with all the same safeguards in place. They believe this would reflect the County's confidence in them as long-term site managers and also strengthen their requests for funding. Voss explained that in initiating capital improvements they found many hurdles in both planning and fund raising. She said 50 years is not an unknown lease agreement in length especially when buildings and capital improvements are involved. She reaffirmed their long-term commitment to fiscal conservatism, collaborative partnerships and their role as a non-judgement forum for environmental relationships, concern and problem solving. Voss said they are looking forward to many more happy and successful years, working with Bob Keefer, Parks, the County and other concerned agencies in the development of Mr. Pisgah as an arboretum of international stature and in assisting in the preservation, interpretation and education of the greater Howard Buford Recreation for one and all.

 

Rust asked about the status of Gillette's primitive campground permit and if it was possible to expedite that process.

 

Cole said that it was his understanding that the department was asking for additional information. He stated that he does not believe a campground is the solution because campgrounds are intended to be temporary, recreational areas.

 

Rust said that he is not as interested in intent, but whether they get through the technical hoops.

 

Green asked for documentation of the progress since the last meeting as far as activity and documentation of that activity. He questioned if there was any progress and if they are going in the right direction.

 

Cornacchia asked if there were any changes in direction given to staff.

 

Rust stated that he would like to get the analysis done quickly and to expedite the process for the campground permit.

 

Cornacchia stated that he was comfortable with the direction given to staff. He said it was his belief that laws are created for the good of the whole and to knowingly break the law carries repercussions and responsibility for those repercussions. He stated that he is hearing a request for a change of rules to open up forest land to public living and said the State has been fighting the forest issues and land use laws since 1971. He does not want people to get the message that Gillette will get that permit because a permit is not necessarily forthcoming. Cornacchia said if Gillette meets the law, he will get his permit.

 

Weeldreyer requested the rationale for why converted school buses are not permitted in RV parks.

 

It was decided that staff will continue as previously directed.

 

3. COMMISSIONERS' ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Weeldreyer stated that Bruce Babbit, U.S. Secretary for Interior, will be in Lane County tomorrow to meet with the McKenzie Watershed Council to look at their efforts as a national model and said there will be a reception at 9:15 tomorrow morning at Armitage Park.

 

Dumdi extended an invitation to the Scandinavian Festival. She also mentioned that a recall election was held in Klamath County and two commissioners were recalled. Dumdi explained that they were recalled because people felt that they had not paid attention to constituents’ wishes and had treated staff badly. She also reported that there would a meeting Monday evening from 5:00 to 9:00 in reference to Oregon County Fair and would be held in the Fern Ridge Middle School.

 

4. COMMISSIONERS' BUSINESS

 

a. UPDATE AND DISCUSSION/Highway 126 Corridor Planning and Lane County Board Participation on the East and West Corridor Steering Committees.

 

Dumdi explained that this was a corridor study and was initiated by ODOT who contracted with LCOG for staff to conduct this study. She said the purpose was to look at Highway 126 from the coast to the foothills, the full length to the County line and beyond because it is a major transportation corridor.

 

Dumdi stated that one of the purposes of this item was to appoint her and Weeldreyer to the two segments. She explained that she would be appointed to the west and Weeldreyer to the east and asked if there were any volunteers to be alternates.

 

Cornacchia said he would be an alternate on the east side.

 

MOTION: Appointment of Commissioner Weeldreyer as the representative for the East Side of the Highway 126 Corridor Steering Committee, Commissioner Dumdi as the representative for the West Side of the Highway 126 Corridor Steering Committee and Commissioner Cornacchia as the alternate for the East Side

 

Dumdi MOVED, Weeldreyer SECONDED. VOTE: 5-0.

 

b. ORDER 96-7-24-1/In the Matter of Adopting a Covered Bridge Logo for Lane County Government.

 

Rust thanked Bruce Biddle, Teresa Nelson and Mike Davenport for their work on new county logo designs. He asked Nelson to describe the process of their design work.

 

Nelson explained that approximately a year ago, they were given the project of trying to create a logo that would represent the county. She said the idea of a covered bridge kept coming back as that idea seemed to represent the county the most, it represented community and is like an open door which invites people to see our County.

 

Rust noted that Lane County has 20 covered bridges which is more than any other county west of the Mississippi. Rust said that the Rural Community Improvement Council unanimously approved the idea of choosing a covered bridge logo as a historical recognition of our heritage. He felt that the more we could get people identifying with the covered bridge logo, the more it would spread the benefits of tourism out into some of the rural areas of the county. He mentioned that since area codes were changing as well as with the routine inclusion of internet addresses, Lane County was going through a period of updating printed materials and said that a logo change was timely.

 

Green agreed that the designs were well done and appreciated the talents in the organization. He stated that he does believe that, generally, when there is a change of a logo in an organization, there is a message sent out that there has been some shift in philosophy or change in direction. Green commented that he did not think Lane County has undergone a significant change. He suggested that Rust submit this idea to CVALCO because he is not sure what their logo is in terms of tourism and convention.

 

Dumdi stated that she has been very unhappy for nine years with the current logo. She said that she likes the covered bridge idea and believed that it accurately suggests Lane County, Oregon.

 

Cornacchia said he liked the idea of change but was not quite ready to abandon the forest representation of Lane County. He was concerned how the half bridge would look after printing and if it were possible to retain same detail.

 

Weeldreyer said that covered bridges are throughout Lane County. She stated that she would really like to see a new logo.

 

Cornacchia suggested letting Rust run with the idea. He suggested putting the top choices with paychecks and asking for input.

 

It was decided that Rust and Nelson would work to get the top ideas out in 60 days to be included with paychecks to allow employees to make their choices.

 

5. EXECUTIVE SESSION as per ORS 192.660

 

None.

 

6. COMMITTEE REPORTS

 

SAVE Standing Committee

 

a. ORDER 96-7-24-2/In the Matter of Approving a $600 Cash SAVE Award to Cynthia Prentice for her Improvements to the Method Used When Setting up New Subdivision Accounts.

 

Sue Pierce reported that this SAVE proposal was a great example of Ms. Prentice taking the initiative to change a process to find a better way to do the same thing. She came up with a greatly streamlined process, saves approximately $5,200.00 a year in Assessment & Taxation and greatly reduces the potential for error. Pierce stated it has been used and implemented and the SAVE committee recommends an award of $600.00 to her.

 

Dumdi MOVED, Rust SECONDED.

 

VOTE: 5-0.

 

7. COUNTY ADMINISTRATION

 

a. Announcements

 

Bill Van Vactor, County Administrator, stated that he wanted to give an update on the Commission on Children and Families issues and, specifically, Healthy Start. He reported that Healthy Start was assigned to the department of Health and Human Services and acknowledged the efforts of Rob Rockstroh, Susie Kent and Peg Peters for their hard work and commitment. Van Vactor reported that he has worked with another team through Jan Oliver from the Commission on Children and Families to review alternatives with regard to the Healthy Start program due to the fact that there is not sufficient funding to maintain the program at its current level for the remainder of this fiscal year. He said they have reluctantly reached the conclusion that they have little choice financially, under existing County policies, but to terminate the program effective August 30, 1996. Van Vactor stated that the Commission is continuing an effort to see if it can examine other sources of revenue to maintain the assessment function of Healthy Start.

 

Cornacchia stated that over the last year and a half, he had placed an appropriate amount of confidence in both the members of the Commission and the director. He said that his response to problems or difficulties over that period of time was to support the Commission and to support the director because he believed they knew what they were doing. He said he remains steadfast in that confidence but felt that it was time to suggest that that concept needed to be scrutinized. Cornacchia said he believed Healthy Start was being terminated because the Commission and the actions of the Commission have dictated that action. He said the Board now needs to determine how to track Healthy Start funds and how to unravel 18 months worth of decisions.

 

Van Vactor said their plan was to deliver the budget and the expenditure to the Commission on July 31 and then report to the Board on August 6 or 7.

Green said he would welcome an audit. He believed an audit would reveal a spending pattern and would give the financial status of the Commission of Children & Families. He stressed having a closer Commissioner connection with the commission. Green remarked he does not want to see a lot of finger pointing. He emphasized that the Board needed to assess the problem and then work on resolving it.

 

b. ORDER 96-7-24-3/In the Matter of Appointing Members and a Chair to the Commission on Children and Families.

 

Van Vactor reiterated that it was critical that the Board of Commissioners have a much closer working relationship with the Commission on Children & Families and, therefore, he recommended that Commissioners Green and Weeldreyer be appointed. He said there was also the issue of current policy with regard to having lay members comprise at least 50%. He said that presented difficulties as far as what happens when a person's occupation changes and, consequently, their status and in that instance, what happens to their appointment. In addition, Van Vactor also thought is was problematic as far as the definition of "lay" because there are individuals that may also be on the board of directors of a provider, and, in that case, does that still have them qualify as lay. He recommended that they revisit this issue. He believed that there was a need to link up the experience that is in our community with this commission.

 

Sowards reported that there are 6 vacancies and the recommendations are in the packet (see material on file).

 

Green recommended that the Board support the recommendation of adding Weeldreyer as well as him as chair, to reappoint Jeff Luke and then hold off on making the other appointments until he and Weeldreyer have had an opportunity to attend a few meetings and do some assessments to determine the actual needs of the commission. Green stated after that time, and in consultation with existing members, they may want to reshape or broaden the commission.

 

Cornacchia stated that he was comfortable with that recommendation and commented that he does believe it is time for Lane County to chair this commission.

 

Dumdi echoed Green’s recommendation.

 

Weeldreyer commented that at the leadership meeting yesterday there was a desire for the Department of Children and Families, as part of the work plan for this coming year, to work more closely with Health & Human Services and with Youth Services and she believed that this move will get them closer to that expectation. She said she is really pleased to see that they are finally getting a level of involvement with this Commission.

 

MOTION: To appoint Commissioners Green and Weeldreyer and to reappointment of Jeff Luke with Commissioner Green appointed as chair of the Commission on Children and Families.

 

Cornacchia MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED.

 

VOTE: 5-0.

 

c. ORDER 96-7-24-4/In the Matter of Applying for a Law Enforcement Block Grant for $29,139.

 

Green noted that this was in conjunction with the Public Safety Coordinating Council.

 

MOTION: Approval of the Order.

 

Cornacchia MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED. VOTE: 5-0.

 

The meeting recessed at 11:00 a.m. to reconvene at 11:15 a.m.

 

8. PUBLIC WORKS

 

a. ORDER 96-7-24-5/In the Matter of Approving Revisions to the Friends of Mt. Pisgah Arboretum Lease at Howard Buford Recreation Area and Delegating Authority to the County Administrator to Sign a New Lease.

 

Bob Keefer, Parks Manager, stated that he would like to extend the lease term to add another 30 years to the lease with a five year renewal in order to allow them to look at that lease every five years and if they are complying with that lease and moving toward further development of the arboretum, they will add another five years, so that at all times there will be between 25-30 years on the lease agreement. Keefer noted that the Board of the Arboretum did want that term extended to 50 years instead of 30 years. He said from staff perspective, he felt that the current suggestion of 30 years with five year renewals would allow them to be successful in obtaining grants for capital improvement. He explained that Legal Counsel did have some concerns about a longer lease.

 

Keefer said the second issue that he wanted to discuss was to increase the size of the arboretum from approximately 118 acres to 210 acres and said that was considered in the master plan for the Buford Recreation area and also for the arboretum itself. Keefer stated that he would like to move forward as recommended in the Board Order.

 

Rust asked what the downside was of a 50-year lease.

 

David Williams, Assistant County Counsel, responded that he believed the request was primarily policy driven. He said he did not see tremendous practical or legal problems for a need to immediately adopt this today, if they wanted to look at a longer period of time.

 

Cornacchia stated that rather than approve the Order which would require the Board to approve the term of the lease in the same form as presented in Attachment A, he would like to direct the County Administrator and Legal Counsel to bring this order back to the Board Chair with an Attachment that reflects conditions for a 50-year lease.

 

MOTION: Approval of the Order with the requested Attachment.

Cornacchia MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED.

 

VOTE: 5-0.

 

b. DISCUSSION AND ORDER 96-7-24-6/In the Matter of Recommending Priorities for the Oregon Department of Transportation s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) 1998-2001.

 

Tom Stinchfield, Public Works, commented that he has handed out a memo that summarized changes he made to the exhibit to the order based on what happened at MPC last week and based on conversations with commissioners and correspondence from the cities. He explained the changes and said the most significant was a change to the Highway 58 project which clarifies that they are looking at a reduced scope of the project. He remarked that at MPC, there was discussion about funding the I-105 soundwall project out of a separate category of funds that MPC is requesting ODOT to create that would not compete directly with the highway projects. Stinchfield said that ODOT is beginning the STIP process and noted there will be a draft to release to the public this fall with public hearings next winter.

 

Green asked about removing the soundwall project from the prioritized list. He stated that he thought it was agreed at MPC to have a footnote for a separate category funding.

 

Cornacchia explained that the maker of the motion at MPC still believes that ODOT has made a 50% commitment and said that was not the case. Cornacchia said he believed that the motion was made with the expectation or understanding that ODOT would fulfill its current commitment out of a different pot of money. He stated that it was his understanding that there is $60 million in this current period to be applied to the region consisting of nine counties and that there is no other money. Cornacchia said that the action taken was that this should not compete with other modernization projects of the metro area but should be funded from a different category and a different fund at ODOT. He explained that there was no commitment made and that ODOT has not identified any sources.

 

Stinchfield stated that he would put the soundwall back on the list.

 

MOTION: Approval of Order with the revised July 24, 1996 Exhibit "A".

 

Rust MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED.

 

David Williams, Assistant County Counsel, stated for record purposes, the original proposed Board Order has an Exhibit July 24, Exhibit "A" and they are actually dealing with the second one that has two separate footnotes.

 

VOTE: 5-0.

 

c. ORDER 96-7-24-7/In the Matter of Adopting Findings to Support Changing Murdock Road from its Existing Gravel Surface to an Oil Mat Surface.

 

Snowden stated that the County has provided very little maintenance on this road due to conditions established years ago within the community. He said that residents now state they want a hard surface. Snowden explained that due to declining resources in the road fund, he did not think bringing that road up to standards was a good expenditure of money and suggested that Murdock Road be given an oil mat surface (see material on file).

 

MOTION: Approval of the Order.

 

Cornacchia MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED.

 

VOTE: 5-0.

 

d. RESOLUTION AND ORDER 96-7-24-8/In the Matter of Approving a Project Design Concept and Acquiring Fee or Other Interests in Portions of Certain Real Properties for Improvement of Alvadore Road at Bud Vaughan Road; and Authorizing Staff to Prepare a Right-of-Way Plan Necessary to Construct the Road, Pursue all Necessary Planning Actions, Acquire Right-of-Way, and Prepare Plans and Specifications for Improvement of Said Road.

 

Snowden stated that in 1992, they received a petition from residents in the area who wanted improvements to Alvadore and 8th. He said they put plans together to that effect and held a public meeting. At that time, he said the residents then preferred that the intersection with Bud Vaughan Road and Alvadore be improved. Snowden explained that the largest cost would be right-of-way acquisition and said there are two properties that would be a total take but both residents would like a buyout. He also noted that the community supports the project.

 

MOTION: Approval of the Order.

 

Cornacchia MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED.

 

VOTE: 5-0.

D. 7) ORDER 96-7-24-19/In the Matter of Entering into an Intergovernmental Agreement with the City of Eugene for Trading Operational Maintenance on Various City Streets and County Roads.

 

Green asked Snowden for clarification of item D7.

 

Snowden explained that the Urban Transition agreements that were signed with the City said that as a city annexes areas, they will then take jurisdiction of the roads as well. He stated that because the City has some island annexations and some annexations that may not be the most efficient from a service delivery standpoint, from a city's opinion, there have been agreements over the years where the County would maintain certain city streets and the City in return would maintain certain county streets. Snowden said it started out as an informal agreement. He said Legal Counsel has raised liability issues and it has escalated now where they are bringing it back to the Board to authorize the County Administrator to enter into the agreement.

 

Weeldreyer asked how often this is amended as additional annexations happen.

 

Snowden replied that it is his intent to do it annually.

 

MOTION: Approval of the Order.
