2006 Bond Measure Progress

Future Home of Santa Clara Community Park

In 2006, Eugene voters passed a $27.5 million bond measure to buy land for parks and open space, as well as add artificial turf at athletic fields.

Most targeted projects complete

Over the last 10 years, most of the targeted projects have been completed including:

  • Acquisition of 1,220 acres of parkland for natural areas and developed parks throughout the community
  • Renovation or construction of 11 turf sports fields in partnership with 4j and Bethel School Districts

The map below illustrates the distribution and type of bond-funded projects across the city (view PDF).

Many targets exceeded with additional funds

In many categories, original targets have been exceeded. This, in part, was accomplished through an additional $15.2 million in grants, donations, partner funds and other capital sources that successfully leveraged bond funding.
