Project Update:

At its December 13 meeting, the Eugene City unanimously approved updated ward boundaries for the City of Eugene. The updated boundaries (seen below) combine changes from two scenarios reviewed by the public earlier this year. Thank you to everyone who provided input into this process.

Project History:

Every 10 years, after the federal census, boundaries for federal, state, and local elected offices, including City of Eugene wards, are reviewed and adjusted to reflect new population data. Updating ward boundaries helps ensure equal representation by local elected officials by making sure each Councilor and EWEB Commissioner represents about the same number of constituents. The current population of Eugene is 176,667, which indicates that each of the eight wards should have approximately 22,083 residents.

The purpose of this process is to ensure that each ward has approximately equal population and to collect community input on proposed changes.

The Proposed Scenario map is available for viewing as is the demographic data associated with the scenario.

An interactive webmap is available for viewing the Proposed Scenario and other data associated with the project.

Information on how to participate in the online public hearing will be posted on the City’s website.

    Every 10 years, boundaries for federal, state, and local elected offices, including City of Eugene wards, are reviewed and adjusted to reflect new population data from the US Census. Updating ward boundaries helps ensure equal representation by local elected officials by making sure each city councilor and  EWEB  Commissioner represents  about  the  same  number of constituents.

    At their September 20, 2021, work session, the Eugene City Council reviewed two possible scenarios that would even out the city’s population across the eight Council wards (about 22,118 residents per ward). The Council would like to collect community feedback on these scenarios and the possible ward boundary changes.

    This survey will be open through October 25, 2021. A public forum will be held on October 25 for people to provide their input directly to City Council. Information collected in this survey and from public comment will be summarized and provided to the City Council at an upcoming work session.

    More information on the Census and Ward Boundary project is available on the city’s website (eugene-or.gov/wardboundary).
