Neighborhood Plan - River
Launch of our Engage Eugene Project Page!

The River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan project is excited to announce the launch of our RRSC Engage Eugene page! Engage Eugene is the City of Eugene’s online engagement platform used to gather community input, give project updates, and ask questions.

As the neighborhood planning process wraps up the Action Planning phase and moves into the Adoption Phase, we’ll be ramping up outreach and engagement again as we start to prepare the Neighborhood Plan Adoption Package.  
Register on the Engage Eugene platform now, share a story or ask a question, and stay tuned for updates, surveys, and other project tools in the coming months. You can also check out other Planning projects on Engage Eugene, such as the Middle Housing Project and the Urban Reserves Project

Spring 2021 Updates to Decision-Makers
This spring, the Neighborhood Plan project team will be presenting to the Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions, Eugene City Council, and Lane County Board of Commissioners on the status of the project. We will be asking for a recommendation on land use code amendments (to implement certain actions and support the vision for the area) that require City and/or County approval to include in the adoption package and approval to move into the Adoption Phase.

The first update will be to the Eugene Planning Commission on Monday, March 22nd at 11:30am. Find Eugene Planning Commission agendas and watch the live webcast here.

The second update will be to the Lane County Planning Commission on Tuesday, April 6th at 6pm. Find upcoming Lane County Planning Commission meeting materials here.

The Eugene City Council update is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, May 12th at 12pm and the Lane County Board of Commissioners update is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, May 18th - time to be determined. Stay tuned for updates in this newsletter and on the Engage Eugene project page.

Middle Housing's 'Meeting In a Box' Tool

The Middle Housing project is using the Meeting in a Box tool, a set of materials that helps folks guide their own meeting with a neighborhood association, community group, friends, and family to provide input. The project is accepting feedback from the materials until March 28th. Don’t miss the River Road Neighborhood walking tour!
