Upcoming event: June 19 – General Meeting & Potluck


Join us on June 19 from 2:00-4:00pm at the Good Samaritan Society, 3500 Hilyard Street, for an afternoon celebration of families. 

We will also address emergency preparedness with a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) presentation by Devonne Maxey, so please bring your questions and suggestions. 

After the CERT presentation, other current City happenings that will affect the Neighborhood:

  1. SW-SAZ restart?  Where are we now?
    1. June 20, Mayor Kitty meeting with select individuals for how to proceed. Disclosure has not happened yet.
  2. Eugene 2035 Transportation System Plan (TSP) – http://www.centrallanertsp.org/EugeneTSP
    1. ALL Streets in Eugene will become “Complete Streets”, i.e. having sidewalks and bike lanes.  This would impact EVERY street, not just the main corridors!  Homeowners are assessed the cost of installing a sidewalk. Cost could be in the thousands for most homes.
    2. Degradation of Level of Service (LOS).  Streets will be downgraded (Letter grades A-F) so that if a street is currently at LOS = D, then it will become LOS=E.  What this does is allow for higher road density while saving developers on extra fees for creating the higher density.
    3. Public Hearing: Tuesday, June 21,  6:00pm, Harris Hall – Lane County Public Service Building, 125 E. 8th Ave.
  3. Cathedral Park/Rest Haven: A land use application to add Affordable Housing to a portion of Rest Haven.
    1. The City has asked all Neighborhood Associations to locate sites for homeless and for affordable housing.  This would be a good thing for helping low-income families.  The neighbors who have contacted SHiNA living on Brae Burn seem favorable to it with condition that a 75′ buffer and erosion control be included.  Negotiations seem to be stalled, but we are hopeful.
    2. Public Hearing June 29, 5:30pm, Harris Hall – Lane County Public Service Building, 125 E. 8th Ave.
