Senate remains opposed to the proposed Riverfront expansion

1/14/2010: CJ Ciaramella has an ODE story on the ORI’s efforts to build in the UO Riverfront Research Center. The Senate voted against the current proposal. It seems the issue boils down to siting near the river, and a 250 200 car parking lot in a prime spot. I am totally uninformed on this but have to wonder why the building can’t go downtown instead, where something like this seems to be desperately needed. On the other hand if this opposition just drives them out to the burbs, whoops. More info is on the Senate web page here and in this Alan Pittman story in the EW, here. The AAA students and faculty opposed to the current proposal have an informative website here while ORI explains their support for this project here.
