Part I: Existing Capacity

Part I of the ways we can accommodate the next 20 years of projected growth is through:

1. Existing buildable land capacity (e.g. vacant and partially vacant land) inside the urban growth boundary (UGB)

Note: the information and maps below have not been updated to reflect the housing capacity revisions discussed in the 2015 Revised Housing Recommendation.

2012 Update
Since the March 2012 Envision Eugene Recommendation was presented, additional data has been collected to bring the existing buildable land capacity up to date through 2012. The updates include:
  • The inventory of vacant and partially vacant land (Buildable Lands Inventory or BLI) is now current through 2012 development
  • Key assumptions for land demand (such as the number of persons assumed per household) and land capacity (such as the average density or the number of homes assumed for vacant land) is updated based on recent U.S. Census data and incorporating land use development data from 2009-2012.
Staff has been working with the TRG (Technical Resource Group) to verify the accuracy of the updated information and analysis. Note that the methodologies that provided the basis for the key assumptions in this analysis have not changed since the Draft Recommendation; only the supporting data has been updated to reflect recent information.

Draft maps illustrating the 2012 update of the existing land supply and capacity are now available:
