Work has now started that will fill one of Eugene’s notorious downtown holes. Lane Community College has begun construction on a new downtown facility—costing $53 million before completion late next year.
Hopefully this will be but a start towards a more vibrant downtown. We’re not likely to get back to what we once were—in times gone by when downtown was a hub of all activities, from shopping and entertainment to business.
Still, LCC’s project is a good start.
