Topics will include Picnic Feedback, SHiNA Board Election’s and 350 Eugene & the Carbon Free Challenge presentation.

350 Eugene is dedicated to helping raise public awareness of climate change. It is organizing direct action around institutions and policies driving climate change issues. Linda Perrine will present the Eugene Carbon Free Challenge which enables Eugene residents to learn about their personal carbon footprint and ways to reduce it. This is a joint project with the City of Eugene, EWEB and 350 Eugene to help neighbors begin to reduce our collective carbon emissions now as part of the Eugene Climate Action Plan. We are working to reach as many residents, businesses, nonprofit organizations and faith groups as we can this year. We need your help! You can host a House Party for the Eugene Carbon Free Challenge outreach and our ECFC team will be glad to help you teach others about this project and the above website. Join us in the work to reduce personal carbon emissions in Eugene!

SHiNA General Meeting this Sunday

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!
