SPRINGFIELD, Ore. --- During a meeting on Monday evening, the Springfield Economic Development Agency announced they are still at least a year away from deciding what will be built on the Glenwood Riverfront property.

Their project-focused meeting included a 90-minute presentation from a team composed of leadership from two firms, Edlin and Co. and DeChase Miksis Development. The two, if accepted, would be working together to manage the property once the project moves forward.

This comes after rumors of a new stadium for the Eugene Emeralds, as well as a few other options. That is not the case at this time; however, it could be an option at some point down the line.

The actual proposals for the purpose of the land will take much longer, though.

“It will be at least a year and it could be more before there's a master plan and sort of the actual formal zoning in place for the site,” said Edlin and Co. co-founder Jill Sherman. “We need to as part of that, of course, be able to show that the infrastructure exists or will exist and how it will get paid for.”

One of the members of the SEDA board said the team was “generally impressed” with the presentation.

After some deliberation, the team is to meet again on Dec. 6 to discuss and likely select the team that presented.
