Proposed Findings of Fact 
Staff presented this report to the school board on May 19, 2010.  The findings state why the district no longer needs the property, zoning and land use restrictions on the property, and community input received to date.

Consultants' Disposition Options
The district's real estate consultant team undertook an analysis of the Civic Stadium property and Eugene's real estate market, and in February 2010 presented to the school board an array of options for the stadium and adjacent properties.

Consultants' Recommendation
The district's real estate consultant team recommended that the school district sell the Civic Stadium property through a Request for Proposal process, and sell two nearby residential parcels separately. However, the district's superintendent recommended and the school board decided that the residential parcels would be retained to allow them to be included in any proposals submitted through an RFP process.

Superintendent's Recommendation and Rationale
Three proposals were received in response to the district's RFP. Superintendent George Russell on May 18 recommended that the school board move forward with a proposal from Master Development LLC and Powell Development Co.
