Minutes from the September 1st City Council meeting have now been posted HERE. (Look for the Evening Session).

Demonstrating /portending growing use of social media, opponents of project started Facebook Page HERE. One of posts includes links to pictures HERE.

Best I can tell some of opposition relates to perceived impact on surrounding neighborhood and on nearby  Donahue-Frohnmayer Park. 

One of appellants of Site Plan and Architectural Committee decision to grant the conditional permit required was Dave Frohnmayer, former Oregon Attorney General and U of O President; City Council hearing notice with appellant names is HERE

Editorial Comment: As much as I would like to think the legal merits of project will result in project being built, my gut tells me to take the "under" in that bet.
