Will Urban Reserves put restrictions on my property?

When Urban Reserves are designated, the City and County will work together to develop policies and code changes to ensure that rural land does not become fully developed before being brought into the UGB. The intention of any code updates for land within Urban Reserves would be to keep rural land rural and ensure that development and land division will not hinder the transition to urban land uses and services. Any new policies or code changes in Urban Reserves areas would need to be agreed to by both Eugene and Lane County.
