So, how large will Urban Reserves be?

In November 2020, the Eugene City Council and the Lane County Board of Commissioners directed staff to move forward with the 27-Year Urban Reserve Option. It includes 5,940 acres of land, enough to accommodate population growth between 2032-2059. For more information about the 27-Year Option, visit the Urban Reserves Options Story Map.
