Neighborhood Plan Heading to City Council and Board of Commissioners

The River Road-Santa Clara neighborhood planning process has been a collaborative effort among community members, River Road Community Organization (RRCO), Santa Clara Community Organization (SCCO), City of Eugene, Lane County, and other stakeholders throughout both neighborhoods.

After five phases and countless volunteer and staff hours, an adoption package was recommended by the Community Advisory Committee, as well as both Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions. The adoption package will now be considered by the Eugene City Council and Lane County Board of Commissioners as the final decision-makers. Eugene and Lane County are considering amendments to the Eugene-Springfield Metropolitan Area General Plan (Metro Plan) to adopt the River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan. Eugene is also considering neighborhood-specific land use code amendments within the River Road and Santa Clara neighborhood boundaries (these changes would only apply to properties within city limits).
