“Ciao Anna and Debby,
Understood. We of POEM are concerned that Brian Obie, ex-Eugene Mayor and owner of Fifth Street Market in Eugene may have “purchased” the Post Office despite Memorandum of Agreement on protecting lobby and murals. A recent meeting of Arts and Business alliance supposedly talked about that happening and his plan to turn it into a hotel. POEM, on the other hand, wants to work with the Postal Union and keep the postal function operating as we use upper and lower floors for a museum. We want to keep the building in the public domain. So as soon as you can shed some light on this situation for us, the better.
