Envision Eugene: Vision to Action


Envision Eugene: Vision to Action builds on the seven pillars, strategies and actions of the 2012 Recommendation and City Council direction with four complementary documents that work together in moving Eugene towards a common vision. Most of Vision to Action will move forward after the adoption of our urban growth boundary; only the chapters of the Comprehensive Plan necessary for adopting our UGB are proposed for adoption at this time.

Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan

The Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan contains policies that allow us to adopt our urban growth boundary. While the chapters of the comprehensive plan with these policies will be adopted with the urban growth boundary, additional chapters will be developed with the other documents of Vision to Action after adopting of the UGB.

Community Design Handbook

The Community Design Handbook is a broad set of non-regulatory design principles and guidelines that express the community’s vision for the built environment. The Community Design Handbook (CDH) represents best practices related to design in support of several pillars of Envision Eugene. The preliminary draft of the CDH is available here.

Previous Drafts

Earlier working drafts of all four components of Vision to Action are available as reviewed by the Planning Commission in fall of 2015. Only portions of the earlier versions of the Comprehensive Plan are proposed to adopt at this time.
