Census and Ward Boundary

Panoramic view of Eugene

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.
