Public recommendations for Lane County Justice Center. by Pat Farr

Extensive input on construction of the new Lane County Court House and associated services is happening


Since the last update provided to the Board on September 24, 2019, staff has conducted an online survey and coordinated eight public outreach sessions in Eugene, Springfield, Oakridge, Florence, Cottage Grove, and Veneta. Review of survey results and information gathering during outreach sessions show several clear themes from the participating residents:

• Be reasonable and practical – we don’t need anything flashy

• Put safety first – getting justice shouldn’t be dangerous

• Fair and equal access – for fairness, everyone must be able to use this building – jurors, victims, defendants, and staff

• Ensure privacy – include spaces that are safe and allow people to meet with lawyers privately, access Victim Services, and have confidential conversations

• Spend wisely – get our money’s worth by building efficiently and with quality materials
