The Community Development team is committed to making Eugene a better place to live and work. We assist businesses and residents with an array of programs focused on specific goals including: affordable rental housing development and housing repair (HOME), Downtown planning and improvement, economic stability through living-wage job creation, and managing federal Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) activities.
The City of Eugene sets rates and standards for garbage, yard debris and recycling collection service inside the City limits. We also support food waste collection for residential and commercial customers. Creating a livable and prosperous community is our core emphasis in developing educational and community partnerships. We promote and enhance local outreach efforts that advance conservation as an essential community value.
The City of Eugene manages over 1,000 on street and 3,000 off-street parking spaces in downtown Eugene. Parking meters and time limits are placed in high-use parking areas of Eugene to encourage the necessary turnover that increases accessibility for everyone and supports local businesses that rely on street parking for customer access.
