The Southwest Hills Neighborhood Association (SHiNA) is a volunteer-run neighborhood organization that is chartered and recognized by the City of Eugene to help with neighbor communications and support.  SHiNA was formerly called Crest Drive Citizens Association (CDCA).  This was renamed by a prior Board to reflect changes in the boundary.  

A Neighborhood Association is not an Home Owners Association (HOA). We do not collect dues, or enforce penalties. Our sole goal is helping neighbors with the City of Eugene and Lane County communications, and provide a means for neighbors to get together for common goals.

2035-TSP 2nd Joint Public Hearing - Monday April 17, 2017

Dear Eugene Neighborhood Leaders,

                               

For the last several years, the City of Eugene along with our partner agencies and many members of the public have been working to develop the Eugene 2035 Transportation System Plan (TSP). The draft Eugene 2035 TSP provides a 20-year blueprint for the City of Eugene’s transportation system and serves as the transportation element of the Envision Eugene comprehensive plan. The TSP was developed based on extensive stakeholder input, analyses of our existing transportation system and relevant adopted plans and coordination with planning processes that are underway.

 

A final draft of the plan is now available and can be found at www.EugeneTSP.org. We greatly appreciate the time that many people have contributed to this plan as well as people’s patience with the length of this planning process.

 

We are now in the final phase of the Eugene 2035 TSP adoption process which includes two public hearings before both the City Council and Lane County Board of Commissioners, and potential adoption by both the City Council and Board of County Commissioners. A City Council work session on the TSP was held on February 27, 2017. The first joint public hearing was held on March 6, 2017. The webcasts from both the work session and public hearing can be found at this website: http://eugene.ompnetwork.org

                                                                                                                                             

The 2nd joint public hearing will take place on Monday, April 17 at 5:30 PM in Harris Hall located at 125 East 8th Avenue. 

 

To submit testimony for consideration by the City Council and Board of Commissioners, you may testify at the public hearing or email your testimony by noon on April 17 to City of Eugene Transportation Planning Manager Rob Inerfeld at rob.inerfeld@ci.eugene.or.us.

 

I would be happy to attend any of your neighborhood meetings to provide an overview of the TSP with an emphasis on projects in your neighborhood or to discuss any other transportation issues, so feel free to follow up with me.

 

Rob

Two Planning Commission Seats Open

The City of Eugene is seeking motivated volunteers to serve on the Eugene Planning Commission. 

 

Participation on the Planning Commission is an excellent way to get involved in local government, and is an interesting and challenging experience that can truly make a difference.

Community members who serve on the Planning Commission provide an invaluable service by assisting the City Council and City staff in developing recommendations and making decisions on issues that affect our community, including housing, economic development, livability and transportation.

The Planning Commission is a seven member group that meets about two to four times per month. Meetings are typically held on Mondays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with an occasional Tuesday evening meeting. There are two openings each with a four year term that begins July 1, 2017.

To learn more about the Planning Commission, contact Alissa Hansen at 541-682-5508 or alissa.h.hansen@ci.eugene.or.us

 

Applications are being accepted through March 31, 2017. For application materials, visit: http://www.eugene-or.gov/86/Boards-and-Commissions.
