Eugene Civic Alliance selects architects to rebuild Civic Stadium facility
EUGENE, Ore. - A local group is taking the next step in redeveloping the former site of Civic Stadium. The Eugene Civic Alliance is in charge of the Civic Park Project.
All of this comes after Civic Stadium burnt to the ground last year.
Now the new president for the alliance is Olympic runner, Jon Anderson. Anderson says the group has selected a team of architects to rebuild the area.
The team includes Rebertson /Sherwood and Skylab Architecture.There are tentative plans for a new field, field house, and indoor court.
Anderson said the new park will serve a huge purpose for youth. "We're short of fields we're short of parks, we're short of courts, and so that's what I'm excited about," said Anderson.
The board of directors also announced three chairs to lead the campaign for Civic Park.
The new chairs include Jon Jaqua, Kip Leonard, and Kidsports director Bev Smith.
These leaders of the thirty-five person team will work to fund-raise money for the project.
Anderson said they hope to have the park opened as soon as possible.
