Urban Reserves Options Review

The City of Eugene and Lane County have been working on Urban Reserves planning since January 2018. With the help of our project partners, we have completed the technical and suitability analysis and have developed a range of Urban Reserves Options for review.

Partners include property owners, service providers, the Envision Eugene Technical Advisory Committee, the Triple Bottom Line Sounding Board, and many others. We will take these options—with the input we receive—to City and County decision-makers later this summer and fall for their direction, with a goal for adoption by next spring. Once Urban Reserves are adopted, they become the first land to be considered if and when a UGB expansion is necessary.

The state gives communities flexibility when selecting the size of an Urban Reserve – therefore, we can designate enough land to meet the needs of between 10 and 30-years of population growth (from 2032). Read the Urban Reserve Options Story Map to learn about how we developed a range of Urban Reserve options for consideration.

After reviewing the story map, share your thoughts! Take the survey below between June 26th - July 26th and be entered into a drawing for a $100 grocery gift card.



Project Background

Urban Reserves planning identifies land outside of Eugene’s urban growth boundary (UGB) so we are better prepared if we need to expand in the future for new homes, jobs, schools, and parks. We are looking as far out as 2062 when Eugene’s population is expected to exceed 262,000 residents.

Visit our project web page for complete information, including our technical analysis story map, and interactive web map.
