Eugene’s system of formally recognized neighborhood associations provides a variety of opportunities for community building in Eugene. Neighborhood associations offer multiple ways for neighbors to meet one another, learn about issues in their neighborhoods, hear about City programs that affect neighborhoods and the work of community partners, and join together to advocate for the health, safety and well-being of their neighborhoods.
Each year, neighborhood associations report on their activities and events, issues they’ve considered, outreach and engagement, and goals for the following year. That information is compiled and reported via a memo to City Council.
