In 2005, the Eugene City Council adopted and applied the /WR Water Resources Conservation Overlay Zone measures to implement statewide planning Goal 5 inside Eugene’s city limits. The provisions went into effect on January 1, 2006. The purpose of the overlay zone is to protect significant riparian areas, wetlands, and other water-related wildlife habitat areas
The South Ridgeline Habitat Study was initiated to study potentially important upland plant and wildlife habitat areas on approximately 2,700 acres near the ridgeline of the south hills. This study will be the basis of future recommendations on possible protection measures or conservation incentive programs for important south ridgeline habitats.
