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: Prepare Adoption Package and Community Vetting

In Spring 2021, the project team received direction from the Eugene City Council and Lane County Board of Commissioners to move into the Adoption Phase and prepare a plan adoption package for community review.

The adoption package will include:

  • Neighborhood Plan Document: articulates the community vision in a goal and policy document that will be a formally adopted, legally binding land use plan (see the Draft Neighborhood Plan)
  • Action Plan: a non-regulatory document to guide implementation of the vision (see the Draft Action Plan)
  • Plan and Code Amendments: to implement certain actions and support the vision for the area (Draft Code Amendments coming soon)

Next Steps

The adoption package preparation will include community outreach and opportunities for input as the Community Advisory Committee, River Road and Santa Clara Community Organizations, and staff prepare and recommend a draft plan to the Planning Commissions. Then, the Planning Commissions will form a recommendation to City Council and the Board of Commissioners. The Council and Board will then consider and ultimately act on the adoption package.

Engage

Stay tuned for opportunities to provide input and participate in community outreach in the coming months. In the meantime, use the tools below to “Ask a Question,” tell us a “Neighborhood Story,” or share where you live, work, or own a business on the "Neighborhood Map."
