Climate-Friendly and Equitable Communities

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Project Background

The Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission adopted the Climate-Friendly and Equitable Communities (CFEC) rules in mid-2022 to help meet the state’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions while also increasing housing choices and creating more equitable outcomes for all Oregonians.

Eugene and Springfield, among other metropolitan areas across the state, are required to change development standards to encourage more climate-friendly development and reduce emissions from transportation.


Project Goals

Through CFEC implementation, the City of Eugene will accomplish the following goals:

  • Comply with the Climate-Friendly and Equitable Communities requirements
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation and housing
  • Provide more climate-friendly housing and transportation options
  • Center the voices of historically marginalized community groups in decision-making

Luckily, these are projects that residents and Eugene City Council have already supported through other community projects such as the Climate Action Plan 2.0, Envision Eugene, Housing Implementation Pipeline, continued investments in downtown, affordable housing, and active transportation infrastructure, as well as other sustainability, housing, and transportation projects.

CFEC will result in changes to the Eugene Land Use Code, revisions to the Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan and 2035 Transportation System Plan, as well as revised requirements for development permits.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Reducing pollution from transportation is the primary goal of a new State of Oregon strategy: Climate-Friendly and Equitable Communities (CFEC). These state regulations require the City of Eugene to change its approach to minimum off-street parking requirements for new development. To choose the best strategy, the City is reaching out and listening to residents and business owners.
