What does the adoption process look like?

As of January 2021, we are beginning to assemble an adoption package for review. The adoption package is a collection of all the work we have done so far that documents how we calculated land need, evaluated the land, and arrived at the 27-Year Option. Essentially, it is similar to filling out the paperwork after making an offer to buy a house. The formal adoption process will include work sessions and public hearings with Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions as well as the Eugene City Council and Lane County Board of Commissioners. The Planning Commissions will consider and form a recommendation to the City Council and the Board of Commissioners. The Council and Board will then consider and ultimately act on the adoption package.
