How does the Neighborhood Plan relate to MovingAhead?

MovingAhead is a partnership between the City of Eugene, Lane Transit District, and other regional partners that has explored what transportation investments are needed in key transit corridors, including River Road. In early 2022, local decision-makers approved the proposed MovingAhead recommendations, which includes a recommendation for EmX (bus rapid transit) on River Road. The next steps in that process involve refining designs for the project (which will include more community engagement), seeking funding, and completing environmental review processes.

Moving Ahead and the Neighborhood Plan are separate initiatives linked by the community’s vision for improved active transportation options such as walking, bicycling, and transit.  The Neighborhood Plan and the proposed land use code and zone changes will establish the land use framework for transit-oriented development, guiding future growth and redevelopment for properties along the River Road corridor. We will need continued coordination between land use and transportation planning along the corridor.
