Proposals for the future of Civic Stadium, the former home of the Eugene Emeralds (short season A; Northwest League) and Pacific Coast League baseball, are due at the end of the month — and it’s not looking good for survival.
The Eugene School Board is entertaining offers for the ballpark, and reportedly four groups are interested in making offers for the property. One group would preserve the ballpark — or at least the grandstand — while the local Y may save parts of the ballpark in a new facility.
The intentions of the other potential bidders are a little murkier; one is a developer who may look at tearing down the ballpark in favor of student housing.
