What's New with Envision Eugene?
November 8th, 2016
This week's newsletter provides an overview of the work we will be doing in the coming weeks to prepare to adopt Eugene's own urban growth boundary. Read more below, or visit our website where you can find the latest information about Envision Eugene. 
Adopting Our UGB
We're making progress on Envision Eugene and beginning the public hearing process for adopting our own urban growth boundary! On Monday, October 24th, Council landed on two strategies to accommodate about 1,600 multi-family homes within our existing urban growth boundary (UGB); accommodating more high density housing downtown and accommodating more medium density housing by increasing the minimum density required in the R-2 zone.Click on the image below to view the webcast of the Council work session where these decisions were made.
Thank you to all of you who participated in making this decision. This action by Council allows the process of adopting our own UGB to move ahead. Over the next month, the Envision Eugene Team will pull together all of the information required to adopt our UGB - about 1,000 pages of documentation! The formal adoption process will start in early 2017, beginning with Planning Commission work sessions and ending with a City Council decision by summer 2017. You can find the project timeline on our website.
Since July, we have been sending these emails about once a week. We are going to be a little bit quieter over the next several weeks while we focus on preparing the materials needed for the urban growth boundary adoption package. We’ll let you know as those materials are posted on our website.

Until then, we want you to know about the upcoming  Planning Commission meeting on November 21st  where Terri Harding will provide an update on Envision Eugene. Meeting materials will be available here prior to the meeting.
