Eugene Planning Commission Vacancy Open – Apply by Jan 31

Join the Eugene Planning Commission

To apply visit tinyurl.com/ApplyEugPC

Recruitment has opened for a position on the Eugene Planning Commission. We are seeking residents living within Eugene’s urban growth boundary who are interested in helping plan for our community’s future. Participation on the Planning Commission is an excellent way to get involved in local government and is an interesting and challenging experience that can truly make a difference.

Members of the Planning Commission provide an invaluable service by advising City Council and city staff on a variety of land use and policy matters and by making recommendations on issues that affect our community, including housing, economic development, natural resources and transportation.

Previous experience with planning or development is NOT a requirement. The unique perspective of community members and a willingness to learn about different aspects of the planning process helps the City better consider the impacts of City decisions. The Eugene City Code requires that every effort be made to ensure that the composition of City committees reflects the diversity of the community.

Regular meetings are held twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesday at 5:30 pm. Occasionally additional meetings are scheduled as needed. Meetings are currently held virtually.

Live in Santa Clara? Want to make a difference?

Get on Board
Santa Clara Community Foundation

Please consider becoming an SCCO board member or member of another committee

The Santa Clara Community Organization will be holding board elections February 3rd.  Any resident, property owner or business owner, 18 years or older, living in the SCCO boundaries is eligible to become a board member if they have attended at least one SCCO general meeting in the twelve months prior to the election.  This Thursday’s meeting (January 6th) gives everyone who isn’t an SCCO member the opportunity to become eligible to run for the board in the February election

The first presentation of the January meeting will be an overview of SCCO’s 2021 achievements.  The presentation will be a good way for those new to the SCCO to learn about the many projects going on in Santa Clara and explore ways to volunteer.

One of the major accomplishments of the year was the formation of a non-profit, 501(c)3 corporation – the Santa Clara Community Foundation.  The Foundation was formed to foster community involvement and investment by organizing and funding projects that specifically benefit the residents of the Santa Clara neighborhood.

Please consider participating in the Santa Clara Community Foundation. Join one of the committees, apply to be a board member, or volunteer on a project. Contact foundation@santaclaracommunity.org or visit https://santaclaracommunityfoundation.org for more information, and a board application.

Monthly SCCO meeting this Thursday, January 6 – 7PM

Please join us this Thursday for what should be a relatively short, but important meeting. There will be a recap of accomplishments in 2021 and a presentation by the SCCO Social Justice Committee.

The main topic will be Keeping Santa Clara Safe. There have been several incidents of racist and anti-Semitic nature in the Santa Clara/River Road area over the past four years. In 2021 alone there were at least four incidents, one involving a gun. We are looking for ideas on how to prevent escalation of bias in Santa Clara.

Also, in case you missed it, here is a link to our December 2021 SCCO Neighborhood News newsletter. Link to newsletter.

LET’S REHEARSE AN EMERGENCY EVACUATION AND RECOVERY TOGETHER!

Ready NW Eugene invites you to a Virtual Evacuation Exercise on Tuesday, February 1st, 2022 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm via Zoom.

Join us to step through a simulated emergency scenario and discuss how you might respond to a threat in your immediate neighborhood. No prior experience is needed to join this conversation. This FEMA-created training technique is an excellent way to safely learn what a real emergency may feel like and what decisions and preparation we need to consider ahead of time.

Chlorine Gas Leak in NW Eugene

Exercise Goals:
Review city of Eugene evacuation alerts and zones.
Review personal readiness to either shelter in place or evacuate.
Review special needs of nearby neighbors.
Review post-evacuation communication options for returning to your home.
