The Southwest Hills Neighborhood Association General Meeting is being held tomorrow, Sunday, June 30th, 2019 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at Hilyard Community Center – 2580 Hilyard Street. The featured topic is information about the housing shortage in Eugene and elsewhere in Oregon and efforts to remedy the shortage.
We have invited speakers Kaarin Knudson who works for the U of O and Better Housing Together and Dan Hill from Arbor South Architecture. They will be speaking on issues relating to increasing density within the Urban Growth Boundary by eliminating Single-Family Residential Zoning and replacing it with multi-family housing. The least-expensive existing housing (and thus most-affordable) will be most-vulnerable to being demolished and replaced with multi-family housing such as four-plexes, triplexes, duplexes, and cottage clusters — the exact details still to be determined. Their talks will be followed by questions and answers.
We are requesting that volunteers sign up to help with the annual picnic we hold in early September at Wayne Morse Family Farm.
The next General Meeting will be held on Sunday, October 6th, 2019 from 4:00 – 6:00pm at Wayne Morse Family Farm, 595 Crest Drive.
Hope to see you there!
