It’s already been a busy fall for neighborhood planning! The River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan is deep in the action planning phase. Working groups of community volunteers are working to edit draft action items and create a prioritized “short list” of the most impactful and feasible actions. At the same time, community members are working with City of Eugene staff, Lane County staff, and local nonprofits to get their technical input on what it would take to implement each of the draft action items that neighbors have suggested.
Draft action items currently include everything from creating a local business network to updating the design standards for new development. Vetting all of the draft actions is a heavy lift—led by the 11-member Community Advisory Committee and supported by project staff.
