Census and Ward Boundary
Every ten years, the Eugene City Council examines the population of City Council wards, based on the results from the U.S. Census. Data from the 2020 Census will be available in the fall, at which time the Council will address potential ward boundary adjustments to accommodate population changes over the last ten years. The purpose of this process is to ensure that each ward has approximately equal population.
- Final 2020 Census data indicates that adjustments to Eugene’s Council Ward boundaries will be necessary to ensure that each ward has approximately equal population. A summary of this data is available to download.
The next City Council Work Session for this topic will be Monday, September 20, 2021
