Kids Not Cars
We, the undersigned, are alarmed that current plans for the new Camas Ridge Community School devote roughly 25% of the site to serving cars, not the needs of children. We oppose wasting our taxpayer dollars on redundant parking facilities that do not align with City of Eugene Climate Action and Transportation plans. We call upon our leaders from 4J and the City of Eugene to collaborate to reduce on-site parking at Camas Ridge Community School, providing the minimum parking allowed by City code, and a small arrival/departure loop for ADA accessibility purposes. To promote student health and safety, environmental stewardship, and equal access, the school should not encourage regular individual car trips.
