EUGENE, Ore. -- A month after the Eugene City Government moved out of the old City Hall, many have set to the task of finding a new building to call home.
City planners said that there are a few feasible building options that could play host to the city government.
One idea being pitched around is that the city purchase one of the unused buildings on the Eugene Water and Electric Board campus. EWEB official Lance Robertson said that there would be ample space to house the local city government.
"We have about 100,000 square feet total within the main headquarters and the north building," said Robertson. "One of the options might be to locate the city council chambers and other city functions in that building."
EWEB said that they are willing to take the city in, but have not made any official meetings on making a decision.
Another option on the table would be to tear down the the current city buildings and rebuild in the same location. There are also city planners looking for locations to put a new Eugene City government building.
The City Council is set to hold a meeting on the issue at the Eugene Public Library Monday evening.
