Amazon Active Transportation Corridor – MEETING THURSDAY


A neighborhood open house was attended by approximately 50 people on Tuesday, May 22nd at the Hilyard Center (Meeting 1). The meeting was held to discuss walking and biking improvements for E/W Amazon Drive (from Hilyard Street to Snell Street), extending the Amazon Path south to Tugman Park along Hilyard Street and installing additional pedestrian crossings of Amazon Creek. A second meeting has been announced for Thursday, October 4th from 6:30 to 8pm. Originally, the grant application was developed for ODOT’s combined Bike/Ped and TE grant program but we were not selected to proceed.  Instead, we’ll submit under a different grant program that will allow us to include repair of the Rexius Trail as part of the grant application.

Agenda:

  • Introduce grant opportunity
  • Presentation of existing facilities and preferences from Meeting 1
  • Group Discussion
  • Discuss next steps

Location:  Hilyard Center (Main Hall), 2580 Hilyard Street, Eugene, OR 97405
