River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan: Action Planning Update
Let's Action Plan!
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. 
How to Get Involved
The survey asking for neighborhood feedback on draft action items is still open. Over 300 people have already taken it, and we want to hear from as many community members as possible. Still haven’t taken the survey? Visit the project webpage or take the survey here.

There is also a more detailed survey that focuses on draft land use concepts for the River Road corridor. Visit the Corridor Study page to learn more and take the survey here.

Interested community members are also welcome to attend a Community Advisory Committee meeting or even join a working group. The next Community Advisory Committee meeting will be on Tuesday, October 15th from 6-8 pm at 1705 W 2nd Avenue.
