Hundreds of neighbors have provided input on their hopes for the future of River Road and Santa Clara. Neighborhood volunteers used that input to create a neighborhood vision, showing how residents want River Road and Santa Clara to look and feel twenty years from now. In the fall of 2018, neighbors started writing policies to turn that neighborhood vision into a reality. They also brainstormed actions that would support those policies on the ground.

The next community event is a chance to make sure the draft policies accurately reflect what we have heard from neighbors. It is also a chance to review and suggest actions to implement them.

The outcome of our work together will be a Neighborhood Plan adopted by the City of Eugene and Lane County. The plan will focus on five main topic areas: land use planning, economic development, parks and natural resources, transportation and community. We have held a large community event for each phase of the project, and this one marks the transition from policy writing to action planning. Come meet your neighbors and help shape the future of your neighborhood!
