Will this neighborhood planning process impact annexation?

The process is a collaboration among the River Road and Santa Clara community organizations, the City of Eugene, and Lane County, so the final plan will affect the neighborhoods in their entirety, both incorporated (City) and unincorporated (County) areas. There is an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between the City of Eugene and Lane County that delegates to the City all responsibilities for land use, zoning, and building permitting authority inside the urban growth boundary. This means that every resident has a stake in the future adopted neighborhood plan, regardless of jurisdiction. 

The community organizations, as well as City and County planning staff, have agreed that annexation is best addressed after the neighborhood plan is complete. Attempting to tackle both neighborhood planning and resolving complex public service delivery simultaneously could prove detrimental to the successful completion of the neighborhood plan process. This would be a disappointment to residents who have put a lot of time and energy into this project.
