What are current regulations for development along the river? Who maintains the riverfront?

The riverfront in River Road and Santa Clara is part of the larger Willamette Greenway, which runs from Eugene to Portland. It is an important community asset. Most of the River Road portion of the riverfront is in the West Bank park, stretching from Maurie Jacobs Park to the Owosso Bike Bridge. This park land is managed by the City’s Parks and Open Space Division. This means that City park rules apply and planned park development is laid out in the Parks and Rec System Plan

For concerns about illegal activity along the riverfront, contact the City’s Park Watch program. The Park Watch website provides statistics on incidents within parks, such as illegal camping and incidents requiring a police response.
