Formal Adoption Process  - Phase 2

After four months of community information sessions, Planning Commission work sessions, a city/county public hearing and several Planning Commission deliberations on the UGB Adoption Package, and a recommendation of approval from both Commissions (Eugene and Lane County) both the Eugene City Council and Lane County Board of Commissioners have voted to approve the UGB adoption package. Next, the City will send the locally adopted UGB proposal to the State for review and acknowledgment. Stay tuned to the Envision Eugene newsletter for further updates.
