Jefferson Westside Neighbors (JWN) invite you to a Zoom forum, The City of Eugene’s Implementation of HB 2001, Mon. Mar. 28 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Join your neighbors to ask questions about proposed regulations for density, minimum lot sizes, maximum building height, tree protections, and other changes.

This session will be moderated by Ted M. Coopman and Rene Kane. Ted is current JWN chair and Rene is a former JWN Chair and retired City of Eugene neighborhood liaison (HRNI).

Paul Conte, another former JWN chair who worked on the alternative proposal developed by neighborhood leaders, will cover some basics and then answer questions.

The City Council is poised to adopt sweeping code amendments that will eliminate single-family zoning across all of Eugene. The changes will not apply to existing subdivisions that are exempted by private contracts known as “Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions.”

Many Eugene residents and property owners do not yet have a full and accurate understanding of the changes that these code amendments may bring to neighborhoods.

The City Planning Division staff proposed, and the Planning Commission has recommended, a set of amendments that go well beyond what is required by State law (i.e., House Bill 2001).

A group of neighborhood leaders has proposed an alternative that would amend the residential zones’ lot and development standards only to the degree necessary to conform to state requirements.

The program will consist of two sections. Section 1 seeks clarification of specific aspects of the proposal code and highlights differences between the two proposals:

  • Middle housing types — Just enumerated, not discussed
  • Attached/detached multiplexes
  • Minimum lot size, including lot division
  • Explicit and effective density
  • Maximum height
  • Tree protection
  • Solar protections

Section 2 is a question and answer session with the audience.
