Boardman Council Ponders Multi-Use Building


The Boardman City Council reviewed site plans for a multi-purpose building proposed by Boardman resident Lisa Mittelsdorf during its meeting Tuesday night.

Mittelsdorf has been raising funds for construction of a 6,000-square-foot steel building for public use for a variety of purposes, including team sports practices, and group trainings. She said there is a need for such a building due to the amount of use the high school’s multi-purpose building gets. She points out that some sports teams do not get practice time at the high school’s facility until 9 p.m. due to scheduling issues.

Mittelsdorf proposes the building be constructed on city-owned property, either behind the city hall building or on N.E. Front Street near the Splash Pad Park. She asked the city to consider the location of the building and assume ownership when the building is complete. The council has tabled a decision until their June 7 meeting when a full council can hear the proposal.

In other city business, the council decided to allow dumping of 200,000 gallons of gray water into the city’s wastewater lagoons by the contractor cleaning equipment on the new PGE Carty Generation Plant.

The next Boardman City Council meeting will be Tuesday, June 7 at 7 the Boardman City Hall Council Chambers.
