Draft Vision Statement

The Land use in River Road and Santa Clara supports neighborhood character and local identity, including our long standing agricultural heritage and high value soils. Our neighborhoods are walkable, with a range of housing types affordable to all residents. Abundant shops, services and community spaces are served by a variety of transportation options. Strategic development and revitalization in more urban locations, especially the River Road corridor, helps maintain neighborhood character while meeting our housing and economic needs in a way that is environmentally responsible. Development is well designed, sustainable, and compatible with existing surroundings. Adjacent to the Willamette River greenway, development improves safety, enhances access, and respects ecological functions.  


Draft Goals

Goal 11: Support development that is well designed and economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

Goal 12: Ensure future housing addresses the needs of the community.   

Goal 13: Support a thriving, vibrant and active River Road corridor.  

Goal 14: Promote land use and development that protects and enhances neighborhood character.
