Eugene Plans For Future Housing Needs

City of Eugene

Eugene’s housing market is tight. As the city looks to future population growth, it’s trying to prepare for even more demand. Eugene seeks public input on options for Multi-family housing.

The City of Eugene wants help as it adopts a new Urban Growth Boundary. City planner Terri Harding says in the next 20 years, Eugene’s population is expected to grow by 34-thousand people.
“So we actually need a lot of housing over those 20 years. We need about 15,000 new homes. And most of those, about 90% can fit inside the existing urban growth boundary, on vacant lots or undeveloped land across the city.”
The city seeks to accommodate multi-family housing—apartments, townhouses, duplexes. This month, there will be several public drop-in sessions to talk about the future of Eugene’s housing. There’s also an online survey at the city’s website.
