Land Use Review
Information about Public Works’ role in the review of land use applications filed with the Planning Division.
The City of Eugene Public Works Department provides research services in person or online that can help homeowners or potential developers identify Public Works issues related to a property prior to the preparation and submittal of a development application to the City.
The most common issues are related to the site’s location and physical characteristics (slope, availability of public services, potential capital improvements, etc) and not to a specific development proposal. Receiving this information requires no plans be drawn up, and no design be provided.
Maps depicting things such as hydric soils, floodplain, and existing wastewater and stormwater systems provide information about the site that applicants will want to consider when planning a development. At the time applications are submitted to the City, issues that may arise during the review will need to be addressed.
New for 2020, there are maps available that can be accessed by simply logging in to the site once you have registered. This is important during the Covid-19 pandemic for no-contact access to some of the information that used to only be available in person. It is located at https://mapping.eugene-or.gov/. If you are a developer or professional in need of more detailed As-Constructs, there is a registration process for access. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and make a request. It is a simple, one-time process requiring some basic information to process.
