Committee Reports:


no updates - Still looking for plumbing prices.

Security & Technology (SecTechCom):

We had the Eugene PD walk around with the Community Services Officer.

Suggestions from that were:

  • improve lighting,
  • improve sight-lines and
  • remove “ambush spots”, suggested that signage lays claim to area so “No Trespassing” signs are needed in North walkway as well as
  • a fence to eliminate easy pass-through traffic,
  • repaint graffiti as it occurs using rotating volunteer teams

Board tasked Committee with coming up with costs and plans to reclaim the walkway area.

Suggestions included:

  • raised bed garden space,
  • replace the dying arborvitae with barberry and
  • install intermittent sprinklers to discourage camping and loitering.

We may also add lighting upgrades and camera coverage to $$ investigation.
