Sports facility proposal to be topic in Oregon

Oregon city officials have called a special meeting Tuesday to get feedback on and gauge the public’s interest in building a sports complex.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the Oregon Municipal Building, 5330 Seaman Rd.

“We’re going to put our feet in the water and see if the water is warm enough to take a swim,” said Thomas Susor, city council president, who is in favor of the project.

The cost to build and operate the proposed facility — which could hold an indoor ice hockey rink and volleyball, basketball, and soccer courts as well as space for the arts — would be covered by private donations and a new tax as part of a private-public partnership, officials said.

The goal is for the levy to be on the Nov. 6 ballot, Mr. Susor said.

He added that the proposal was not developed enough for officials to be able to provide exact cost estimates, although construction could range from $6 million to $7 million.
