Interested in locating Downtown?  Downtown Eugene is the social, economic and cultural heart of our community. It’s where we come to take in a show, engage with local government, or meet up with friends for a coffee or a night on the town. And increasingly, it’s a place where many of us live. Downtown Eugene also produces more tax revenue than any other part of our city (on a per acre basis), which pays for services (like libraries, parks, roads and police) across our community.
