Urban Reserves is another long-range planning project that includes areas within Santa Clara. With the help of many stakeholders, we have completed the project’s technical and suitability analysis and have
developed a range of Urban Reserve Options for review
. We will take these options—with the input we receive—to City and County decision-makers later this summer and fall for their direction, with a goal of adoption by next spring.
The state gives communities flexibility when selecting the size of an Urban Reserve – we can designate enough land to meet the needs of between 10 and 30-years of population growth (from 2032 up to 2062). We have developed four Urban Reserves options that range in size
and we want to hear from you!
To review our four Urban Reserves Options, read through our
Online Options Story Map
. It gives project background, explains the high level pros and cons of each option, and is interactive. After you visit the Options Story Map, check out our
Engage Eugene page
; it includes our online survey, project materials, and a link to sign up for virtual office hours with project staff.
