Jefferson Westside Neighbors Hold Panel With Capstone

The Jefferson Westside Neighbors will hold a panel discussion during their monthly meeting Tuesday evening. Neighborhood residents plan to meet with representatives from Capstone – the business responsible for the new 13th and Olive apartments in Eugene.

Some residents in the downtown area are not pleased with the tenants and management of the new 1,300 bedroom complex.

Tom Happy is on the Jefferson Westside Neighborhood board. He shares some concerns:

Happy: “Pedestrian safety on the sidewalks around the parking garages with cars coming and going a little bit too fast. Sometimes they’re just not paying attention to people on the sidewalks. I’ve heard some complaints about litter and overflowing trash bins and a lot of dog excrement, along and on the sidewalks.”

Happy says noise complaints are another problem. He’s heard about them from tenants of Olive Plaza, a housing complex for elderly and disabled residents next door.

Two Capstone representatives will be at the meeting along with a University of Oregon delegate. The discussion begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday at First United Methodist Church in Eugene.
