Get Involved with Envision Eugene!

After six years of community engagement, Envision Eugene is moving into a new phase, the formal urban growth boundary (UGB) adoption process. Thank you to everyone who has provided input over the years. Your comments and suggestions have all contributed to the documents that make up the current UGB adoption package.
 
In this new phase of Envision Eugene, we are moving from gathering input from the community to shape the vision, strategies and policies, to asking for feedback on the documents that make up the UGB adoption package. Staff, Planning Commissioners and elected officials want to hear from you. How do you think the UGB adoption package reflects our community's vision, the seven pillars of Envision Eugene and previous Council direction?

  • Prior to formal public hearings, community members will be able to learn more and ask questions at Community Information Sessions held across the city (see schedule below).
  • Both the Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions will hold a series of work sessions to review the materials in order for the Commissioners and the public to get familiar with the proposal and process.
