When we host
For a presentation and conversation around housing, zoning, neighborhoods and potential big changes to all three looming on the horizon.
While the goal of providing a growing population with more housing choices and more affordable options is widely accepted, there is concern that the idea of increasing density in the areas of single family lots throughout the city might fail to provide increased affordability and at the same time negatively impact the character of low density neighborhoods.
Eben Fodor is a local community planning consultant.
He has been a leading researcher on the impacts of urban growth and land development. He writes on growth and sustainability issues and speaks on these topics across the US.
Second on the agenda will be a presentation and discussion with
Eric Brown, City of Eugene Planner and
Rene Kane, Human Rights & Neighborhood Involvement (HRNI) Neighborhood Planner
who will talk about the draft Neighborhood Planning Guidelines developed by the Planning Dept. & HRNI. The Neighborhood Planning Guidelines are intended to serve as a resource to residents interested in addressing local concerns and aspirations through a planning process or neighborhood project.
