10. COMMISSIONERS' ANNOUNCEMENTS

Weeldreyer reported that in the City of Westfir (West Oak Road), Lane County is upsizing a culvert and improving drainage problems. She stated there is a local resident that wants Lane County to change some of the drainage on the road. She said she wanted legal counsel to determine if a bigger culvert can be put in. She asked for a letter from County Counsel. She announced that tomorrow Senator Wyden is having an all-day workshop at the Eugene Hilton on rural infrastructure.

Sorenson reported that today at noon LRAPA met and their Board unanimously approved a motion to offer the position of Executive Director to Brian Jennison.

Morrison announced she participated in a conference call with AOC on the Safety Net. She stated she was not opposed to the motocross. She reported that she would be traveling to Brazil.

Dwyer noted that he was not opposed to the motocross either, he was opposed to them in residential areas disrupting the neighbors.

Weeldreyer reported that AOC met yesterday, setting direction for the steering committees to refine recommendations for priorities for the 2001 session.

11. COMMISSIONERS' BUSINESS

a.  ORAL REPORT BACK Charitable Contributions Campaign.

Ron Gernhardt, stated he chaired the United Way Campaign again and he considered it a privilege, working on his own time. He reported they started with a goal of $60,000 and 500 employee contributions. He noted they fell short of the goal but they did well with $57,000 and 400 employees participating, amounting to an eight per cent increase over last year. He reported the top five departments participating were Public Works Zone 6 (Dexter), Parks Department, Management Services and Department of Children and Families, Public Works Special Projects and Public Works Zone 4 (Veneta). He reported the number one department was the District Attorney’s office and with a 249% increase over last year.

Green presented Gernhardt with a plaque for all of his efforts on the campaign.

12. PUBLIC HEARINGS

a.  SECOND READING AND PUBLIC HEARING Ordinance No. 9-99 Amending Chapter 11 of Lane Code to Add Provisions Authorizing Temporary Overnight Camping at Religious Institutions (LC 11.100-20) and Declaring an Emergency.

John Cole, Land Management, reported that it is an ordinance that allows religious institutions to provide space on their property for up to three vehicles to house homeless individuals or families. He added if the religious institution chooses to participate in the program, it must provide trash service, hand washing and toilet facilities to the individuals and families staying on their property. He said the ordinance applies countywide, not limited to within the urban growth boundaries. He noted in the previous reports to the Board, they had made a staff recommendation that indicated the ordinance should be adopted only if a social support network was funded. He added a similar network is provided within the City of Eugene by St. Vincent de Paul, which provides funding for some of the facilities the institutions use and for mediation. He noted that no money had been identified for use within the unincorporated areas of the County. He said the Board could continue the hearing to provide more time to identify funding sources or to approve the ordinance in the absence of a social service program. He suggested a staff report back in one year on issues as a result of passing this ordinance today.

Steve Manela, Human Rights Commission, reported the memo they put together outlines a range of options the Board has for consideration. He said the range includes everything from just providing information to churches to piggybacking on the City of Eugene’s contract, to provide technical assistance to respond to complaints that arise. He said the action today is to approve or not approve the ordinance, then staff could proceed with monitoring the implementation. He added no resources have been identified, but they have an ongoing partnership with the faith communities and those options could be explored at a later date.

Cole said they took this matter out of a land use decision and if there are difficulties in the countryside with an occupant of a vehicle and neighboring property owners, that particular conflict would fall on Land Management Division’s compliance section as rapidly as it may go to the Sheriff’s Office. He was concerned about the compliance program’s ability to constructively address some of the issues that may come up with the homeless staying in vehicles in church parking lots.

Manela said if the ordinance is implemented, it is important to monitor the activity and work with the City of Eugene and provide information packets to the churches willing to participate, to see if it is problematic or not.

Richie Weinman, City of Eugene, said when the council committee looked into this, there was a lot of concern about garbage and more police calls. He stated it had not materialized that way at all. He noted the police rarely deal with homeless complaint issues. He said with regard to the churches, they have only had one complaint of a neighbor in more than a year. He added with regard to the one vehicle per person, they have looked the other way when they discovered that people have more than one vehicle.

Commissioner Green opened up the Public Hearing.

Tom Musselwhite, 458 Blair, Eugene, stated he works with the Homeless Action Coalition. He urged the Board to support this, as it is proven with the City of Eugene. He said it should be throughout the whole County. He added there is a need for outpatient care on a sliding scale and a public campground in an area that is accessible for people to get to with a progressive rate structure.

V. Starr, city camp, said he lives in a camper in one of the city’s camps. He suggested to have a limit of three households in place of three vehicles. He added that there should be a camp host at each camp site to take care of things that come up in the camps.

Charles Gray, stated he was formerly the Co-Chair of the Homeless Action Coalition and they struggled with the City of Eugene in order to obtain changes in the ordinance. He said he was in support of this ordinance as it allows church congregations to express their compassion for the homeless in a practical way. He added this ordinance leaves out homeless people who do not have a vehicle. He said what is needed is a public campground that provides for persons who don’t have vehicles. He supported a sliding scale.

John McFadden, 577 Knapp Lane, Eugene, said he was encouraged that this public hearing was taking place and the ordinance is being considered. He urged the Board to fund and pass the ordinance.

Peggy Thomas, 1324 Oak Patch, Eugene, reported that the program is in Eugene and includes other areas besides churches. She said she would like to see it go further at the County as a volunteer program. She urged the Board to pass this and include businesses and non-profits. She added that the City of Eugene also puts up spaces.

Helen Lagorie, 181 West Brook Way, Eugene, said she is a member form St. Jude Catholic Church. She reported that allowing churches to invite people could be withdrawn at any time. She said by being involved with this for two years, they learned that having homeless people with the parish community is not necessarily a "feel good" opportunity as there are difficulties. She added it is also a learning situation. She noted that the homeless enter into contracts and the churches have a say on how it is running. She noted that unless people are employed on a night shift, their transportation vehicle is out of the parking lot during the day. She also said they asked for a goal plan for greater personal support. She noted on their church property, the homeless can stay a maximum of six months for the greatest stability so they can be in the process of learning how to apply for a job, getting job skills and getting a job. She added for them, it was best to have a responsible contact person and backup in case the backup person was out and something came up on the church property. She said if they are not living up to their agreement, then their invitation is removed. She said that part of the process is holding people accountable for their actions.

Jake Dudell, 890 W. 12th, Eugene, stated he works for St. Vincent de Paul with Mike McFadden in helping with the City of Eugene ordinance program. He noted there is no funding to help with this project but he is afraid an ordinance will be passed and nothing will happen. He noted churches were interested and asked for information. He said it will take an infusion of energy to solicit churches and invite the City of Eugene churches to talk with other churches and their experiences. He said it takes time, coordination and money. He said they encourage churches to spend $72 per month for portable toilets. He said the expense is a half-time position and sanitation.

There being no one further signed up to speak, Commissioner Green closed the Public Hearing.

Weeldreyer stated she was in support of the program but was concerned because there is not a large level of police protection in rural areas, as in the City of Eugene.

Weinman recommended that before the homeless park in a church parking lot, to have a reference check done.

Dwyer said this program will help minimize some of the conflicts in the rural areas by allowing the churches to integrate and interact with some of the people. He said this should be done as a pilot. He thought it would work and expand.

Morrison noted that something similar is taking place is Florence with referral to the police agency and then to Food Share or the Women’s Center. She said she supports the program because the Board is not mandating it. She said she contacted two ministerial associations in Veneta and in Florence and found that there are churches in violation of land codes by allowing people to park on their property. She said they are not having concerns with restrooms, washing facilities and garbage. She said the cities of Florence and Veneta would have to pass their own ordinance in regard to this. She added they are questioning the costs, as they are exceptionally high for what they have already been doing at no cost. She said she was willing to go forward with this because each church’s Board will be allowed to make their own decision.

MOTION: to adopt Ordinance 9-99.

Sorenson MOVED, Dwyer SECONDED.

Green stated he was in support of this, not on the testimony, but overall it had been a good effort made by staff. He said this allows religious institutions to accommodate those that have a need to park their vehicles on church property. He supports monitoring to see how the County can do better once they are able to identify funds. His concern regarding finding contingency funds was as they approach budgeting, this would be the first to go. He said it needs to be built into the system so it can be sustainable with funding.

Weeldreyer spoke in favor of the motion as it provides the faith community with the opportunity to show compassion for the homeless in a practical way.

ROLL CALL VOTE: 5-0.

13. PUBLIC WORKS

a. ORAL REPORT BACK Marcola Motocross Track.

John Cole, Land Management, reported that the Land Management Division staff has not been actively pursuing any additional noise ordinance complaints at the Marcola Motocross Track. He said they had not received any specific noise complaints to investigate. He suggested three options that the Board could take. He said they could continue with the current approach, relying on Lane Code in its existing form including the new 5.6 Prohibited Noise Ordinance. He noted specifically through the noise ordinance, it would allow a specific response on the part of the County to a specific neighborhood problem that had been identified, the majority of which had been the noise problem. He said there is a logistical problem conducting noise ordinance inspections on the Marcola Motocross track, when the activities may be taking place at night or on the weekends when Land Management staff is not normally working.

Cole reported there is a likelihood in neighborhood dissatisfaction continuing, even after a reduction of motorcycle noise was accomplished. He noted other related issues expressed by neighbors including safety, dust and runoff from the property would not be addressed by existing codes. He suggested adopting new land use regulations that would address motocross tracks. He said there are amendments being worked on to address motocross tracks and they are scheduled to appear in front of the planning commission in March and April and to the Board in May and June, so if there was an interest with the Board in looking at the motocross issue, that direction could be given. He said the negative approaches that he sees is whether or not the current motocross track on Log Creek Road (because it is in existence today) would become a grandfathered non-conforming use. He noted this could become a bigger issue while still not solving the specific problem at Log Creek. He added there will be a difficulty in distinguishing hobby motocross tracks from other exempt uses of four wheel or other off-road vehicles on properties and that could become another enforcement issue for the County. He noted the third approach would be available to the Log Creek neighbors to seek private civil action against the Log Creek track operators if they believe that their life is impacted by activities on that property. He said it would specifically address the problem and any resulting injunction or awarded penalty would accrue to the neighbors. He said the negative aspect is that the County may be seen as not providing a constructive role in the conflict mediation and that the neighbors must assume the expense of the litigation themselves. He said while there is a logistical problem in County staff traveling to Log Creek Road in a timely fashion and responding to complaints of noise activity, there is nothing in Lane Code or operations that would prohibit the neighbors themselves from conducting their own noise monitoring. He added their office would accept private noise monitoring as long as the monitoring was conducted by an individual who was properly trained and using equipment that meets the minimum requirements of Lane Code.

Weeldreyer asked if the County had invested money in equipment for monitoring sound and if that information was admissible in court.

Cole responded that a Type 2 noise meter is needed and one is being used by Public Works that they will loan. In responding to Weeldreyer’s question about issues of runoff and environmental effects to the land, he said the two related complaints he heard had to do with runoff into a Class 1 stream and building permit violations. He noted there was a garage building under construction that had been getting inspections with a current valid building permit and he did not find a violation. He added the maps his office uses to determine riparian setback requirements indicated that there is not a Class 1 stream on the property. He noted the issue is whether or not mud is making its way into a small stream that is on the property and into the Marcola River.

Kevin Hillman, 39886 Howard Road, Marcola, stated he was a 17 year resident at the location. He noted that this type of activity in his neighborhood is inappropriate. He said he sees zoning for motocross in an area that is appropriate, like industrial areas where noise is expected.

Richard Talpai, 95609 S. Marcola Road, Marcola, noted this is an ongoing noise and it is causing stress in the neighborhood. He said a decision needs to be made and it is a land use issue.

Steve Cunliffe, upper Mohawk Valley, stated he had never heard such offensive ear piercing noise. He said he lives 300 feet from the motorcycle track. He said he can’t have windows open and his daughter can’t do her homework. He said the noise has to stop.

Cherie Goodwin, 40069 Log Creek Road, said she is five acres away from the illegal motorcycle track. She said she can’t sleep as they are riding until 10:00 p.m. She said Rogers is a bad neighbor. She wanted Rogers to live at peace with the other neighbors.

Ken Kaufman, 40069, Log Creek, asked the Board to stop the noise.

Bruce Truax, 1000 Seville Avenue, reported that his daughter rides at the track. He said they race all over the state of Oregon and his daughter is the Oregon State Champion in racing four wheelers. He stated that all of his racing equipment has to meet appropriate sound levels. He said the kids have been threatened and guns have been shot off in the area. He said there are over 200 tracks on people’s property in Lane County. He stated it is not one person that Lane County is affecting. He added none of the bikes are ridden at night as they have no headlights. He said there is a problem with Rogers having people at his house and the County can’t have a say about who comes on personal property.

Eric Rogers, 39951 Log Creek, submitted a letter by another track operator and copies of plans for noise reduction. He said his family and friends have been subjected to gun shots while they are riding. He said they are making noise on the nights they ride and it is only twice a week. He said he is entitled to that time as his neighbors are entitled to planting flowers and listening to the birds. He said he had been cited about the noise and paid the fine but had not been given the opportunity to reduce the noise. He said if it cannot be reduced to a legal level, he will quit riding on the property. He noted that the BLM is working with rural areas to encourage owners of private property to have family oriented recreational activities on their property, and that is what he is doing.

Devin Johnson, 40331 Tonga Lane, Springfield, said when living out in the country there are certain privileges in comparison to living in town. He reiterated that none of the vehicles had headlights so they can’t ride at night. He noted that riding at Shot Gun Creek is unsafe and it is rundown with a lot of trash.

Carl Barnes, 39977 Log Creek Road, stated that Rogers’ track borders his property line and he has been there for 24 years before anyone moved in. He said he has no problem with the motocross track and the dust is not as bad as it is claimed. He said he gets irritated when people threaten him. He said that Rogers should be left alone and accusations dismissed.

Sorenson asked if there were violations of the noise ordinance.

Cole responded what they have in place was one citation and that began the civil penalty process, involving three separate formal communications to an applicant before an ongoing fine and a daily fine will begin to accrue. He said the department was one step into that.

Sorenson asked if there was anything for the Board to do.

Cole stated that he had been at the site on two occasions and each time it was on a Thursday, at one of the pre-agreed riding times. He said there were three to four motorcycle riders at the time he had been there. He said that level of activity does occur and wonders if there is other motorcycle riding that may go on in the neighborhood that is independent of Rogers’ track. He noted there is no perimeter security that would keep a rider off Rogers’ track without his permission while he was away from the property and that would add to the problem in the neighborhood. He said he understood the neighbor’s concerns about the noise level as being a problem and that is the primary problem. He added there are other concerns about safety that have grown over time and it is unlikely that the County would be able to play a constructive role resolving some of the inter-personal complaints. He said that Lane County will be in a position to address the noise violations and will not be as quick as the neighbors would like it to be, but they will continue to monitor the noise and issue monetary penalties when the County’s noise violation is being violated. He added there is a potential within the existing regulations for Rogers to operate a Motocross track where the noise level is below 60 decibels, that would meet the existing County ordinances and would represent an unacceptable condition to the neighbors.

Weeldreyer reported that she spent two hours at the Goodwin home on Saturday and met with a dozen residents who were candid in telling her their frustrations. She noted most of the frustrations have been represented to the Board in different opportunities. She said their frustration level is at such a point that they will take matters into their own hands if the County doesn’t take some action. She added she visited the Rogers’ property. She said she did not see any evidence of the dirt that had run down to the creek. She asked him if he had spoken with the neighbors to find out their concerns. She said he indicated that the neighbors had been harassing his family at different times along the road and his concern was the fact that his wife (who is an employee with the District Attorney’s office) has undergone a tremendous amount of scrutiny by the District Attorney’s office staff for allegations that the residents had made and thinks her reputation among her co-workers and employer have been tarnished. She recommended to the Board to schedule an evening town meeting in February at Mohawk High School, to bring both sides of this issue together in a constructive format. She said at this point communication has almost stopped between the opponent, the motocross operator and the people who use the track. She said she wanted to work on short and long-term measures to still allow the activity to happen in Lane County, but to do so in a way that everyone gets something out of the resolution. She added if the Board didn’t want to do it, she (as Commissioner of the district) would like to have the opportunity to have staff time with Land Management, the BLM and federal partners, to craft solutions to the noise problem and address any environmental issues.

Green stated if it allows for a more peaceful solution, he would be in favor of it. He was not in favor of having a meeting just to have people come together. He said there may also be a social problem that exists.

Dwyer said there is no right to turn rural acreage into a motocross truck to disturb neighbors. He said a clear message needs to be sent to define what "a not permitted use" is or there will be more problems. He said motocross tracks need to be zoned industrial. He said there is a responsibility as a neighbor that the tranquility of the neighborhood is not destroyed. He said he was ready to propose an ordinance or defining what is not permitted to let people know that they have a responsibility to their neighbors. He said unless this activity is stopped, there will not be tranquility in the neighborhood and the Board should send out a message that Lane County will not tolerate it.

Morrison said she understood where Weeldreyer was coming from but didn’t agree. She noted she went through a similar situation with Dunes City with all of the vehicles on the sand dunes. She added once people become divided, there is not much that can be done. She said this incident has gone beyond the issue, it is personalities and the basic goal is that they don’t want Rogers to live there. She agreed there were other issues other than the motocross and the noise level needs to be addressed. She thought there would be conflict, no matter whether there is noise or not.

Sorenson suggested the Board establish a noise ordinance and a clarification of acceptable land uses. He noted it is something that needs to be regulated. He said he liked the Board authorizing Land Management to be involved with the mediation. He said he was not in favor of putting Board time into this, he wants to put Board time into an ordinance countywide.

Weeldreyer noted that after the noise violation was issued to Rogers, he made a ruling for the riders on the track, that unless they had turned down the sound on the motorcycles, they could not race on the track. She stated Rogers’ request of the Board was to be given the opportunity to make modifications to the bikes that are on the track and to work with his neighbors to get back to the peace that was there before the problem. She believes that they could use this incident as a way of trying to craft terms that would apply countywide. She strongly opposes another law that specifically targets this particular sport because of the noise.

Dwyer asked if a private motocross track was a permitted use of residential agricultural zones.

Cole responded it was, as long as it was not for profit. He said if a homeowner establishes a dirt trail around their piece of property and rides their motorcycle on their property, that would not be a violation of the zoning ordinance.

Weeldreyer stated she would proceed as commissioner of the district in trying to bring both sides together to get to some key levels of understanding. She wanted authority to use County staff at the meeting to get policy recommendations

Green said there was a majority of support for Weeldreyer to have more than 15 minutes of staff time for this meeting. He added there are some Board members who are willing to eliminate this activity all together. He said Weeldreyer will work with Land Management staff to bring the parties together at a meeting.

Weeldreyer stated she wanted the meeting in February and by March take the work back to the Board for direction.

Morrison suggested using special monies (25% that the counties would be receiving) for projects to build a motocross track.

b.  ORDER 99-12-14-10 Awarding Tourism Special Projects Grants for 2000 and Authorizing the County Administrator to Sign the Agreements.

Carol Ann Peters, Parks Department, reported on August 24, the Board appointed a committee to review the grants and make recommendations. She said their names are Dan Egan, Kathy Leighton, Greg Evans, Lauren Fox and Ron Hanson. She added they received 54 requests this year for $330,000 and there was only $140,000 to grant. She said they met on November 18 and came to a unanimous decisions and the list to be recommended is in the packet.

Morrison asked why there was no formal appeals process.

Peters replied they modeled their process from Clackamas County to make it an easier and quicker process to grant. She noted that everyone that mailed in a grant received a letter about today’s meeting and there is no formal appeal’s process, but are welcome to speak during public session.

Morrison suggested to be given a longer period of time to review them.

Sorenson suggested for next year to schedule it two weeks ahead of time to review the matter to give the public an opportunity to contact the commissioners and for the commissioners to make changes.

MOTION: to approve ORDER 99-12-14-10.

Dwyer MOVED, Sorenson SECONDED

VOTE: 5-0.

c.  STATUS REPORT AND DISCUSSION Horse Creek Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation (HBRR) Project.

Ollie Snowden, Public Works, noted that last April, the Board agreed to sponsor a highway bridge replacement application for Horse Creek Bridge. He added it is a local access road that is open to the general public, but the County does not have responsibility to maintain the bridge. He said the bridge needs to be either repaired or replaced. He stated the Board put conditions on the sponsorship that if the bridge was replaced to modern standards with federal money, Lane County would accept ownership of the bridge and 500 feet of road that leads from King Road west into the bridge. He noted the other condition was that the County not put any money into this so the match for the federal aid would have to come from the users of the bridge. He added they received approval of the grant, with the estimated project being $430,000 with 80% federal money, 10% state money and the other 10% from the land owners or users in the area. He said the problem is that since ODOT has been working on the bridge, they determined it is historic and a rehabilitation alternative needs to be considered. He noted the outcome will be different from the previous direction, it will be rehabilitation of the old timber truss bridge that is 16 feet wide. He said the County will spend more money maintaining the bridge than they otherwise would. He said the Board could change the Board Order indicating that Lane County will accept ownership of the bridge, even though it doesn’t meet modern standards. He noted the other alternative would be to withdraw sponsorship of the grant application. He said if the Board withdraws sponsorship, the residents would be upset but if they decide to take the bridge in substandard condition, the residents would be happy and there would be no need for a public meeting.

Weeldreyer stated she had worked on this project since 1992 and it is an issue that goes back to the 70's. She recommended to continue forward as they have been working on this in good faith. She said the cost will be less than the cost of a new bridge and it serves the residents. She added because they are promoting tourism for the McKenzie, it will be another opportunity for people to see this bridge as an historic wooden bridge.

Morrison’s concern was the match money and in the long term, the maintenance costs will be higher than if the bridge was replaced.

Snowden agreed and said that was why it was his recommendation not to proceed with the bridge.

Sorenson stated he would take Option C 1 to amend the Board Order and obligate Lane County to assume ownership of the bridge.

Snowden recommended changing the Order that Lane County would accept ownership of the Bridge after the project is done. Snowden said he is recommending Option 3, to withdraw as the project sponsor.

Green stated the Board wanted Option C 1.

Snowden stated he would come back to the Board with an Order stating that.

d.  ORDER 99-12-14-11 Approving a Closure Plan for Richardson Upriver Road.

Snowden stated the consensus at the November 30 meeting was that the Board did not want to use gating alternative and signing alternatives. He said he listed them and is recommending posting the road with Road Closed signs at Milepost 0.5, 3.3 and Road Closed Ahead, with advanced warnings and hazardous condition sign. He added that access is controlled through issuance of a facility permit. He stated that the Road Closed sign is a regulatory sign, people could be cited for being within the boundary without permission. He added that a warning option is not a citable offense.

Weeldreyer noted that the Department of Forestry is urging the Board to close the road during the rainy season and asked about the liability that Lane County would be subject to if there were warning signs as opposed to road closed signs.

Wilson said that closing the road reduces the risk of liability. She said that closing the road and issuing a facility permit allows someone into a risky situation. She stated the safest, lowest risk is to close the road. She said she agreed with Snowden.

David Cramsey, District Forester, Roseburg Forest Products, noted their land was involved in the fire on the road. He said their concern is that they have no access to the bottom portion of their land with the road being closed. He added they have no access to the land for salvage or reforestation opportunities.

MOTION: to approve Option 1 a for ORDER 99-12-14-11.

Dwyer MOVED, Morrison SECONDED.

VOTE: 5-0.

Snowden said he will get the signs up next week and they will unlock the gates and send letters to all property owners within the road closed signs, with a facility permit, asking them to sign and return it.

e.  ORDER 99-12-14-12 Appointing One Member to the Lane County Planning Commission.

Dwyer said that their recommendation is to appoint Charles Donald Clark to replace Steven Moe, who resigned. He noted that his term begins immediately.

MOTION: to approve ORDER 99-12-14-12.

Morrison MOVED, Dwyer SECONDED.

VOTE: 5-0.

14. EMERGENCY BUSINESS

ORDER 99-12-14-13 Approving a Revision to the Intergovernmental Agreement of 0000106148 Between The County and The State Department of Corrections, a Revision of the 1999/2001 Community Corrections Plan and Authorizing the Department of Health and Human Services to Execute These Changes.

Van Vactor noted the revision is only $27,000 out of a multi-million dollar contract and the Department of Corrections needed this order before the end of the calendar year.

MOTION: to approve ORDER 99-12-14-13.

Morrison MOVED, Dwyer SECONDED.

VOTE: 5-0.

ORDER 99-12-14-14 Leasing a Portion of the Delta Shop Complex to Nextel Communications.

Dwyer requested an inventory of the potential sites that could be leased to generate revenue.

Don Maddox, Public Works, suggested that the locations of the site facilities are specific in criteria and the people in the business know where the sites need to be. He said another option would be to draft correspondence to the organizations indicating Lane County’s willingness to consider any proposals to site such communication complexes on Lane County properties.

Van Vactor suggested Maddox and Jeff Turk work together on this project.

MOTION: to approve ORDER 99-12-14-14.

Weeldreyer MOVED, Dwyer SECONDED.

VOTE: 5-0.

There being no further business, Commissioner Green recessed the meeting at 5:15 p.m.

Melissa Zimmer
Recording Secretary
