Lane Transit District (LTD) has closed on the purchase of the property that sits at 2611 River Road at the corner of Green Lane and River Road in the city of Eugene’s Santa Clara Neighborhood. LTD’s Board of Directors approved the purchase of the property at its January 15, 2020, Board meeting.
“Safety, accessibility, and convenience for Santa Clara Transit Station users and the neighborhood were the reasons why LTD purchased the property,” said Joe McCormack, LTD’s Director of Facilities. “Acquiring the property allows for more unobstructed sight lines for neighbors entering or exiting Green Lane to or from River Road, as well as for buses and vehicles using the Park & Ride as they enter and exit the Santa Clara Transit Station.”
LTD will remove the current building on the property and develop it to include landscaping and hardscapes.
LTD paid $240,000 for the property, and, as is required by law, will work with the hairstylists that leased the building to find other locations for their businesses.
