Meeting Agenda

Introduction
The development of housing units in downtown has prompted discussions about mobility options for people traveling between campus and downtown.  The University of Oregon student group "LiveMove" decided to study what they determined to be the most direct connection between campus and downtown - 13th Avenue.  The results of their analyses were compiled into a report and the recommendation for a two-way protected bike lane on 13th Avenue has gained community attention including a generous financial offer from private citizens to help fund construction of the facility.  In response, the City of Eugene is engaging the community in a discussion about transportation options between campus and downtown to determine the best course of action.

Process
On Wednesday, December 4th, 2013 the first community meeting to discuss transportation options between campus and downtown for people who ride bikes was held at the Eugene Public Library.  Participants were presented existing conditions information for three transportation corridors: 11th, 12th, and 13th Avenues.  After each corridor was introduced respondents were asked to describe personal experiences and opinions related to traveling through each corridor.  The meeting presentation and summary notes are linked below.

A second community meeting was held on April 17, 2014 to discuss improvement options for traveling by bike from campus to downtown.  City staff are still evaluating 11th, 12th, and 13th Avenues to identify improvements that would make travel for people who ride bikes a more comfortable and intuitive experience. Announcement of the next meeting will appear on this page when scheduled.
