      Civic Stadium sale on Eugene 4J board agenda

      EUGENE, Ore. - Should the Eugene 4J School District sell Civic Stadium to the City of Eugene?


      Or to a developer working with Fred Meyer?


      Or to the Eugene YMCA?


      The school board is expected to take a vote on the matter Wednesday night. The superintendent already lent his advice: sell to the city to avoid a protracted rezoning effort.


      Only the city wants to preserve the stadium as a stadium, albeit with the help of an as yet unknown private partner.


      The Y wants to build housing and a YMCA.


      Powell Development wants to build a retail mall anchored by Northwest one-stop-shopping chain Fred Meyer.


      The school board early on dismissed an offer from Save Civic Stadium.
