Get Involved with Envision Eugene!

On Monday, October 24, 2016, after significant public outreach, Council landed on two strategies to accommodate about 1,600 multi-family homes within our existing urban growth boundary (UGB). These strategies are to accommodate more high density housing downtown, and accommodate more medium density housing by increasing the minimum density required in the R-2 zone. Thank you to everyone who provided input on these strategies. This decision allows us to move ahead with the formal adoption process.

Review Process and Input Opportunities

As we move into the formal adoption process of Eugene's own urban growth boundary and comprehensive plan, there will be additional opportunities for you to provide input. These opportunities will be highlighted here and through various other channels, including our newsletter, Facebook, local newspapers, etc.
Community input from the summer has been incorporated into Draft 1 of the materials required for UGB adoption. These materials will then go through a public hearing process with the City of Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions. A revised draft will then go through a public hearing process with the Eugene City Council and Lane County Board of Commissioners.

Summer Outreach Events

Over the course of the summer, the Envision Eugene Team brought information on Envision Eugene and a 20-minute neighborhood game to events all over the city! We also hosted three "deeper dive" events to answer detailed questions about specific options and proposals. To learn more about what a 20-minute neighborhood is and where they are in Eugene, go here. See some of the high-level topics we heard from community members here. You can find a complete summary of all of our outreach here.
