On December 5th the Envision Eugene Team was in Salem at the Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA). The Team was there to present an oral argument in defense of Eugene's conclusion that the existing urban growth boundary (UGB) contains enough land for housing. The Home Builders Association of Lane County has appealed the City's determination to LUBA. A decision on this appeal is expected in the new year.
Clear Lake Expansion
The adopted UGB included an expansion in the Clear Lake area for jobs, a park, and a school. Bringing this land inside the City’s UGB is the first step towards development in the area. More detailed studies can now begin. Studies will support design, funding, and the build out of infrastructure like roads, sewer, and fiber. We also need to plan for how to meet our wetland and storm water management goals so the area becomes a green industrial job center of which we can all be proud.
