In a partnership with Lane Community College (LCC), the City of Eugene is relocating City Council meeting space and some city offices to LCC’s Mary Spilde Center downtown campus building at 101 W. 10th Avenue this week. Effective the week of January 4, 2021, Mayor and City Councilor offices and the City Manager’s Office will be located on the second floor. The ground floor will house the Office of Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement in early January. City Attorney offices will be located on the third floor.
While public meetings will continue to be conducted online during COVID-19 restrictions, there will be space on the ground floor for City Council meetings once they resume in-person. For information on how to access online public meetings visit our Public Webcasts and Meeting Materials page.
To meet COVID-19 safety requirements, in person services at the City Manager’s Office and the Office of Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement will continue to be provided by appointment only. For more information on scheduling an appointment call the City Manager’s Office at 541-682-5010 or the Office of Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement at 541-682-5177.
Relocating city offices in the building, which will continue to house LCC classes as well as 4J offices, supports the critical downtown investment in the building and consolidates several City services in the area of 10th and Oak. The LCC Mary Spilde Center provides an accessible location that supports an important educational institution in the community. The City partnered with LCC in 2011 to help develop the Mary Spilde Center by providing the property this campus is located on, as well as $8 million in Urban Renewal funding for construction.
The three-year lease agreement provides the City with interim meeting and office space while the future City Hall is planned for the park blocks.
