As a champion of Affordable Housing, Greenway Protections and Local Jobs, I support the community effort to protect the Proposed Lombard Apartments site.
I believe the property is better suited to re-enter the public domain and serve a higher common good. For too long we have put profits over people and the Planet.
We are calling on;
The City of Eugene and Lane County Commissioners support this visionary effort and stand with their constituent to encourage
Evergreen Housing Development Group in the resale of the proposed Lombard Site back to the community for the original purchase price of $850,000.00.
• a portion of this land be protected as open-space and these trees be preserved for future generations.
•a portion of this land be used to provide context sensitive affordable housing for the most vulnerable people in our community.
• and that any and all development of future affordable housing use ONLY local labor.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for collaboration and for creating a legacy that we can all be proud of.
