City Club of Eugene: Eugene Street Repair Bond Measure - What is proposed in this round?

Recorded On: October 20, 2017

Air Date: October 23, 2017

On November 7th, Eugene voters will decide whether or not to approve a third bond measure to fix streets and fund bicycle and pedestrian projects. At a cost of $51.2 million, this would fund rebuilding 78 streets among the 91 listed projects. Two advocates speak on this transportation measure that will appear on mail-in ballots.

Councilor Claire Syrett speaks for the Eugene City Council, which endorses the measure. Syrett, along with Eugene City Councilors Greg Evans and Alan Zelenka, submitted arguments in support of the measure in the City of Eugene Voters’ Pamphlet.

Brittany Quick-Warner speaks for the Eugene Chamber of Commerce, which has also endorsed the measure and submitted an argument in support in the Voters' Pamphlet.

Otis Haschemeyer speaks on the two arguments in opposition in the City of Eugene Voters’ Pamphlet. Issues opponents have raised include the amount of bicycle/pedestrian funding and whether or not road projects will continue to be funded via consecutive bond measures.
