Eugene's Civic Stadium property was open to the public yesterday (Sunday) for the first time since a fire destroyed the historic grandstand in June. About 1,500 people visited for "Civic Community Day" to play games, reminisce and get a look at the master plan to rebuild the site. Civic Alliance Advisory Board member Derrick Johnson tells KLCC's Tiffany Eckert about the fire's effects and what the future holds.

City of Eugene

The City of Eugene announced Friday it will move forward to buy Civic Stadium from the 4-J School District and sell it to a non-profit group committed to its restoration. According to the city manager’s office, Eugene Civic Alliance met the deadline to provide “assurances” that the $4.1 million dollars needed to purchase the defunct stadium has been raised.

7-year old Leo Rickard, a first grader at The Village School,   represented the generosity required by many when he presented his donation of 84 dollars to the cause.
