Spring-Summer 2018: Actions and Priorities

Nearly 300 residents attended the community events on June 6th and 10th 2018. Attendees reviewed the draft neighborhood vision statements and discussed the big questions that have emerged in the five topic areas. Input received at these events will help neighborhood volunteers and staff weigh priorities and actions as we move into the next phase of this project. You can view a KMTR piece on the event here

Small group outreach on the vision statements and the big questions is ongoing. Please contact us if you would like to host or participate in a small group outreach event.

We have also made a questionnaire available online. This questionnaire mirrors the small group discussions that took place on June 6th and 10th. Follow the link below to take the questionnaire and download the accompanying visuals.

If you would like to review the draft vision statements, visit the topic area pages and send us your comments by email.


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.
