The River Road - Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan is led by the River Road and Santa Clara Community Organizations, the City of Eugene and Lane County, relying on broad community engagement to develop and implement the neighborhood vision and action plan. The public involvement plan will guide community outreach and involvement throughout the project.

Thank you to everyone who has provided their time and feedback throughout this process! Results of this community outreach are published on the What Have We Heard? page.

As we move into different stages of this project there are going to be volunteer opportunities, workshops and other ways that you can get involved. Sign-up for our newsletter and check back here to learn about ways you can participate.

Community Advisory Committee members and working group members are currently drafting policies under the 19 draft goals of the plan (see topic area page). If you are interested in volunteering on a working group drafting policies, please email staff and we will connect you with the right people.

Community Advisory Committee

The River Road and Santa Clara Community Organization Boards nominated members to serve on the Community Advisory Committee (CAC). The nominations were selected from a pool of volunteer applicants. On January 8th, the Eugene Planning Commission confirmed those nominations. The following individuals will represent their communities throughout the planning process.

CAC meetings are open to the public. Neighbors are also encouraged to use the project email to directly contact the CAC with input and concerns, so they can be addressed as quickly as possible.
