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.
- At a Work Session on November 8, the City Council directed staff to prepare the final map and Resolution for new ward boundaries. This Proposed Scenario incorporates elements from both Scenario 1 and Scenario 2 and is based on community feedback received and reviewed by City Council at the November 8 Work Session.
- A Public Hearing has been scheduled for December 13 related to the Proposed Scenario.
- The Proposed Scenario map is available for viewing as is the demographic data associated with the scenario.
- An interactive webmap is available for viewing the Proposed Scenario and other data associated with the project.
