Neighborhood Planning Priorities

The City Council discussed a motion related to planning projects in several neighborhoods yesterday including the South Willamette Special Area Zone. Action on the motion was delayed until Council’s Monday April 24th evening meeting after public forum. The current motion on the table reads as follows:

“I move to direct the city manager to refocus the city’s planning efforts, but continue community engagement in South Eugene, on developing special area zones or refinement plans to the River Road/Santa Clara area where significant preparatory work and planning has already occurred by area residents, and to the Hwy 99/Bethel area, which along with the River Road/Santa Clara area contains two of the city’s main transportation corridors where multi-unit densities are contemplated by Envision Eugene, and bring back a plan for moving forward on university neighborhoods.”

Comments on this motion may be sent to the Mayor and Council at or made during public forum.
