What's New with Envision Eugene?
May 11th, 2017
With both Planning Commissions having made their recommendations on Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) adoption, we have published Version 2 of the UGB Adoption Package, which reflects their suggestions. This newsletter provides links to Version 2 and an update on the urban growth boundary adoption process with important upcoming dates. You can always find the latest information about Envision Eugene on our website.
We have published Version 2 of the UGB Adoption Package. Version 2 reflects the Planning Commission’s recommendation and modifications to the adoption package as a result of public testimony heard during the Planning Commission process, Planning Commissioner suggestions, and staff edits for clarity and accuracy. The full adoption package for both the City and County can be viewed in the
document center on our website.
The full UGB Adoption Package is over 1,000 pages long and contains many documents. In order to help folks navigate this lengthy proposal, we have broken it down by topic and specific document on the
Adopting Our UGB page of our website. This is the place to go if you are looking for an overview of what is contained in the UGB Adoption Package or you are looking for a specific document.
The most significant edits from the Planning Commission process were made to the proposed Clear Lake Overlay Zone. These revisions were made to increase preservation of large lots in the employment expansion area. For more details, see the
revised overlay zone.
Council and Board of Commissioners Process
Version 2 of the UGB Adoption Package (the Planning Commission recommendation version) will be the focus of review during the Eugene City Council and County Board of Commissioners phase of the UGB adoption process. This phase starts today, with publication of Version 2 of the Adoption Package. Work sessions will be held with both elected bodies, followed by a joint public hearing.
