This is hard to say. There is a chance that the city could need to expand sooner than expected, or that land designated as Urban Reserves would never be included in the urban growth boundary (UGB). In the future, if analysis shows that we need more land to accommodate more people, we will consider expanding the UGB and will look to Urban Reserves areas first. Essentially, Urban Reserves become the first priority land to grow into. However, how much the UGB expands and where within Urban Reserves the UGB expands will depend on several factors, including how fast Eugene’s population grows, how densely we are growing within the UGB, and what kind of land we need (residential, employment, etc). Our Growth Monitoring Program is tracking this. See the graphic illustration on the next page for more information.
