“Eugene’s existing neighborhoods provide the foundation for the community’s overall livability.” (Envision Eugene 2012 Recommendation, Approved by Eugene City Council)
SOUTH WILLAMETTE NEIGHBORS
PETITION TO EUGENE CITY COUNCIL
As residents, business owners and/or property owners within, around and affected by the proposed South Willamette Special Area Zone (SW-SAZ), we respectfully request the Eugene City Council to suspend the adoption process for the proposed zone change and to develop a refinement plan to address land use and transportation policies that have broad community support as an appropriate plan for future evolution of the established residential neighborhoods and businesses in this area.
Further, we request the City Council to direct that this community‐based process be guided by Statewide Planning Goal 1, which requires meaningful involvement of a cross‐section of affected citizens in all phases of the planning process.
Further, we request the City Council ensure the outcome of this process fully and faithfully conforms to Envision Eugene Pillar #5: Protect, repair and enhance neighborhood livability.
