Perspectives On A South Willamette Special Area Zone

Meeting Date: September 18, 2015

Air Date: September 21, 2015

The Eugene City Council will hold a public hearing on October 19th to discuss the proposal to create a South Willamette Special Area Zone. At the hearing, citizens can express their opinions about the long-range plan that covers the area from 23rd to 33rd Avenue, roughly from the base of College Hill on the west to Amazon Parkway on the east.

If approved, the plan will redefine the forms of buildings that will be allowed within the area. That will mean lowering allowed building heights in some areas and raising them in others. The City Club’s September 18th program reflects the great interest in the controversial proposal.
