The Unfunded Needs Assessment (UNA) is a compilation of significant unfunded financial challenges that the City of Eugene faces in providing current services and anticipated service needs as the community grows and the organization evolves. It is compiled by asking City staff throughout the organization to describe what they see as service needs in their areas.
This assessment reflects a range of priorities driven by policy level direction from City Council goal statements, direction given at Council work sessions and other methods. Community input also drives much of the UNA items through various master planning, neighborhood planning and other processes. The UNA is also informed by City workforce needs, staff planning and assessments and professional analysis performed on infrastructure and capital projects, such as the pavement management plan and the Facility Condition Report.
