Land Use Code

Eugene's Land Use Code

Eugene’s land use code regulates how property may be used or developed and is an expression of our community’s values around economic development, housing affordability and choice, natural resource protection, compact urban development, transportation options, climate change and energy resiliency, neighborhood livability and adaptable implementation. If you have questions about Eugene’s land use code, please contact the planner-on-duty at 541-682-5377 or email.
