Urban Design

Urban Design is the process of shaping the physical setting for life in our city; it operates at the intersection of architecture, city planning, transportation and engineering, real estate economics, landscape design, and ecology. The result is a comprehensive approach to every project that uplifts the social, environmental, and financial quality of the buildings, streets, sidewalks, and spaces where we play out our lives.

Historic Preservation

Eugene’s Historic Preservation Program seeks to increase public awareness of this history and character and to facilitate preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historic structures, landscape features, and other culturally significant objects and areas. Just as the Willamette River, Skinner and Spencer Buttes, and the Cascades define Eugene’s natural surroundings, our historic buildings and neighborhoods trace Eugene’s history and help define the character of our city and of the Northwest.
