Blackhawk Center in Oregon to have a new owner

The Blackhawk Center in Oregon is expected to get a new owner in the near future.

The facility is currently owned by the Oregon Park District. The intergovernmental agreement would have the Oregon School District take over the facility as of September 1st.

The school district currently uses the facility for fall and wnter sports teams.

Park officials are meeting tonight to talk about the proposal. The Oregon school board will meet next Monday night.

The change of ownership will not have any affect on real estate bills for residents in the area.

The Blackhawk Center is currently connected to the high school by a corridor. The Oregon school district currently pays a yearly rent of $168,000. That money would be used for salaries and maintenance once the agreement is approved.

Current repairs will be made by the park district before the ownership transfer is completed.

No changes are expected in scheduled event for both districts in past years that use Blackhawk Center.
