The Great Eugene Cleanup

Filed under: Downtown Eugene,Olympic Trials — admin at 7:40 am on Friday, June 27, 2008

The Register Guard recently reported that the State of Oregon has given Eugene approximately $200k to clean up the city in advance of the Olympic Trials.

This has been fantastic, and has discouraged graffiti “artists” from polluting sidewalks and signs in parks. It has also impacted Eugene citizens’ perception of their city, and city leadership. Temporarily at least.

All for $200k. I encourage the City of Eugene to make this type of cleanup a long term commitment. Part of a long term plan to renew the city. For all the millions being spent on wooded acreage that the elite 5% of the city uses (and a good thing it’s not all residents, or it would fall to ruin), the city could take a small % of those city/county/state $ each year and maintain the resources closest to residents.

Thank you Olympic Committee and the State of Oregon!

Now if only we can clean out the growing illegal alien population, the druggies that stand on street corners begging for money, and the worthless Eugene Mayor and city councilors that continues to protect the scum mentioned above.

Then Eugene would be clean.

Good job on the Olympic Trials. We are selling homes here in Bend if they are priced right. If you have any extra buyers send them our way. There are a lot of good homes available.

Other cities need to take notice of the success that Eugene is having with this campaign! If other cities can duplicate the success that Eugene is having, it could reduce crime and increase property values!
