What's New with Envision Eugene?
August 16, 2016
Each of these newsletters focuses on a different piece of adopting our own urban growth boundary (UGB). Over the past few weeks we zeroed in on multi-family housing as the remaining piece to be figured out before we adopt our own UGB. This week we take a step back and look at housing more generally. We've included a reminder about the multi-family questionnaire and information about upcoming community events, where you can chat with us about Envision Eugene! You can always get the latest information at the Envision Eugene website.

We are planning for 34,000 new Eugeneans by 2032. According to our estimates, Eugene's population in 2032 will be more ethnically diverse and we will have more people 65 years and older. We will also continue to have smaller than average households as well as a high college-age population. These trends are explained in detail in our
Population and Demographics Factsheet.
These figures and trends have implications on our housing needs and the types of housing we should plan for. Our
Housing Mix Factsheet explains how we determined the number of single family homes and multi-family homes
we are planning for.
There are many trends and statistics that help us plan for our future housing needs and our goal of providing housing affordable for everyone. Check out our
Housing Affordability Snapshot, which includes key information related to the Envision Eugene Housing Affordability pillar.
Last week the Envision Eugene Team was in Bethel twice! On Tuesday we attended Party in the Park at Bethel Community Park and Thursday we attended Family Fun Night at Petersen Barn. We heard from residents about the important role parks, rec centers and pools play in their lives. We also heard a strong desire for more commercial development (stores and restaurants) and better bike and transit connections.
