Project Background

The River Road and Santa Clara Community Organizations, City and County staff, consultants and neighborhood volunteers have been working together since the spring of 2017 to create a neighborhood plan for the River Road and Santa Clara neighborhoods. The River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan will focus on five topic areas - Land Use, Economic Development, Transportation, Parks and Natural Resources, and Community.

Current Phase: Action Planning

The CAC and staff have been preparing an Action Plan to support implementation of the Neighborhood Plan. The Action Plan will consist of community identified actions that are possible strategies to implement the policies of the Neighborhood Plan and will include general budget, timeframe, and feasibility estimates and strategies for ongoing implementation.

The Action Plan will help focus the community work towards the vision for how the River Road and Santa Clara neighborhoods will look, feel and function over the next 20 years and beyond. Overall themes include equity and inclusion, connectivity, healthy people and climate, safety, prosperity, and neighborhood identity.

Next Steps: Preparing the Neighborhood Plan Adoption Package and Community Vetting

The next steps in the neighborhood planning process including circling back to outreach and engagement again! Once we’ve finished final edits on the draft goals, policies, and actions – we’ll need community feedback! Stay tuned for opportunities to provide input and participate in community outreach in the coming months.

    This spring, the project team will be presenting to the Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions, Eugene City Council, and Lane County Board of Commissioners on the status of the project. We will be asking for a recommendation on land use code amendments that require City and/or County approval to include in the adoption package and approval to move into the Adoption Phase.
