In July, 2017, Eugene City Council adopted two separate ordinances related to the establishment of a new urban growth boundary. The first ordinance addressed land for employment, parks and schools; the second ordinance addressed land for housing. The Home Builders Association of Lane County filed a legal challenge to the second ordinance, related to housing.
On January 10th 2018, the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) issued its Final Order on the Home Builders Association’s challenge. LUBA’s decision affirms the City’s housing ordinance, upholding the City’s action with respect to all issues raised by the Home Builders. This decision allows Planning staff to continue implementing the community vision through a variety of important projects.
