The Crow Road study area provides a unique opportunity to develop a high-level master plan, or land use concept, because it is a large, mostly undeveloped area that is within the UGB and can provide more housing to meet some of our 20-year needs. The current plan designation (or long range plan) for the entire area is Medium Density Residential, which reflects the early 1980s vision for dense housing to support a potentially large employment area north of West 11th Avenue.
Since then, conditions have changed, with much of the employment area now recognized as high value wetlands for protection or restoration through the West Eugene Wetlands Plan. Consequently, the amount of dense housing needed in this area is less than previously thought.
The planned land uses in the Crow Road study area will be studied by working with the property owners and service providers to determine appropriate locations for housing, parks, utilities and streets. There are several factors to be considered for developing a land use concept for this area which include but are not limited to:
