Multi-family Housing Options

UPDATE - On October 24, the Eugene City Council directed staff to prepare the urban growth boundary adoption package using two strategies to meet our remaining multi-family housing need: 1) High Density Residential Downtown Redevelopment Strategy, and 2) Medium Density Residential Option B to increase minimum density requirements (in R-2 zones) with exemptions for lots under half an acre in size and subsidized affordable housing developments. For more information, see the work session webcast and meeting materialsthe presentation, and the multi-family housing outreach results report

Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan


One major piece of adopting our own Eugene-specific urban growth boundary is to adopt Eugene-specific policies related to that urban growth boundary. These policies are contained in the new Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan. 

Adopting our Urban Growth Boundary

After five years of community visioning, technical analysis, and Council direction, we are ready to put all of the pieces together to adopt Eugene's own urban growth boundary (UGB)! How we plan for jobs, parks, schools and housing are all part of the decisions that will be made over the coming months. We need your help this summer to make sure the remaining pieces, our housing strategies, meet community needs for affordability and livability.

Urban Growth Boundary Expansion Areas

The proposed Eugene-specific urban growth boundary includes two expansion areas for jobs, parks and schools. These expansion areas are in the Clear Lake area of the Bethel neighborhood and in Santa Clara.
