Upcoming Lane County Plastics Roundup Pre-collection Notice.

Hi Neighbors, I’m signed up as a Santa Clara area Community Collector for the Plastics Roundup happening on April 7th. You can bring your clean, de-labeled, sorted plastics to me ANYTIME between now and April 3rd. You will need to make an appointment with me to curate your materials (so you can bring home and discard anything that won’t be accepted). Plus, I’ll educate you about the process (and encourage you to educate others). It’ll be fun and informative, I promise. My number is 541-689-8897. Please leave a voicemail and I’ll get right back to you. Or, you can email me at plastics@protechworks.com.

For information direct from Lane County: Visit https://www.lanecounty.org/plasticsroundup

River Road Transportation Projects – Funded and Planned Lists

Those who attended the recent River Road Corridor Planning Workshops were able to pick up a Transportation Update for projects along River Road. The document, including maps of where the projects are located, can be found here. The following are excerpts from the document. Most of the funded projects are to be completed from 2019 through 2021. Other projects in the planning stages, such as the Beaver-Hunsaker corridor, have a much longer time line.

River Road Corridor Study Workshops conclude tonight – Wed, Feb 13

A lot of progress has been made at the first two days of the Corridor Study and workshops. Yesterday’s workshop provided the opportunity to look at some new ideas for the area from Beltline to Hunsaker. Ideas included a city library branch, a community meeting room, a restaurant and housing on the former Santa Clara school site.

Tonight, the last of three consecutive workshops starts at 6:30 and ends at 8:00. There will be a short presentation at 7 PM. Please join us. Drop in anytime. Plan on spending 20 to 30 minutes reviewing the different stations.

You’ll find information about updates to the intersection at River Road and Hunsaker, the LTD transit station, and development possibilities for the rest of the old Santa Clara School property. You can also learn more about housing options, possible ’20 minute neighborhood’ centers along the corridor and more. (The Corridor Study also includes River Road south of Beltline down to Maurie Jacobs park.)

6:30 – 8:00 PM
