Bizarro world?

In some sort of bizarre twist of fate, the city of Eugene, Oregon found itself with a giant surplus of cash and decided to fund floundering skatepark efforts. Sk8Eugene had this to say:

In a monumental unanimous decision, the Eugene City Council today voted 8-0 in favor of endorsing the Eugene Parks Department’s recent proposal to allocate additional SDC (Systems Development Charge) funds for the development and construction of the WJ Skatepark in order to begin construction of the ENTIRE proposed skatepark in 2013. Just as importantly, the Parks proposal does not require additional private fundraising for near term ongoing maintenance. Although a continued capital private fundraising campaign will be necessary and ongoing, the Eugene Parks Foundation has stepped up to spearhead these additional private fundraising efforts.

Those giant pylons in the design sketch above are actually piers supporting an overhead highway. Fly-throughs of the proposed Dreamland park design can be found here.

- Thanks to Sarib and Andrew for the tip.

  1. Of course! Of course they’re going to break ground on this right as I graduate and leave the city. I’m stoked this is coming to life though. We were super excited about it and went to a bunch of city meetings my freshman year.

  2. Donald, Aumsville, Harrisburg, Eugene… The Dreamland I-5 tour just get’s better.
