Neighborhood Mapping Activity at October 17th Public Meeting

Community Event #2: Actions and Priorities

Throughout the fall and winter of 2017, hundreds of neighbors expressed their values and hopes for the future of their neighborhood. Staff and volunteers drafted a neighborhood vision, which you can provide feedback on at the community event. The next step is to turn the neighborhood vision into a reality through policies and actions. At this community event, neighbors will have the chance to dive into specific topics and discuss the priorities and trade-offs among specific action items.

Where: North Eugene High School Cafeteria, 200 Silver Lane in River Road

When: June 6th 5:30 – 8:00 PM & June 10th 2:30 – 5:00 PM

A light meal, children's activities, and Spanish-language translation will be provided!


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

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.

Topic Area Working Groups

Working groups have been established to tackle the five topic areas that this plan will address. The membership on these working groups is not fixed though, and residents are encouraged to join a working group at anytime.
