Urban Reserves

The City of Eugene and Lane County have been working on Urban Reserves planning since January 2018. 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 planning as far out as 2062, when Eugene’s population is expected to exceed 262,000 residents. Identifying the best areas to grow into requires balancing our community’s priorities, such as preserving local farms and natural areas, while following state guidance and using the most up-to-date data.

Visit our project web page for more information, including our technical analysis story map, and our interactive web map, where you can find out if your property is being considered for Urban Reserves. Or check out our video on why we are planning for Urban Reserves. Then take our survey below!


Due to developing public health concerns, staff is continuing to evaluate ways to safely get public input. This page will continue to be updated, please check back soon!
