The goal of the proposed amendments is to expand the areas in which secondary dwellings are allowed in the City, as required by recent state legislation (Phase 1 Implementation of Senate Bill 1051).
The proposed amendments focus on where secondary dwellings will be allowed in the City and will increase the number of zones where secondary dwellings are permitted. Continue reading

Eugene Public Works is planning for another busy year of road construction projects. In all, construction crews will rebuild or resurface more than 20 roads throughout the city. While most of the projects are on local, residential streets, crews will improve four main corridors as well as enhance safety features for people who walk and bike. Combined, the improvements are expected to total more than $10 million and repave a total of more than 18 lane miles of streets.
The larger projects include portions of West 11th Avenue (Bertelson Road to Danebo), Garfield Street (Roosevelt to 6th Avenue), 7th Place (Bailey Hill Road to Highway 99), and West Amazon Drive. The rest of the work, 17 roads, will be primarily residential streets.
Most of the funding for these capital projects come from the 2012 voter-approved bond measure. As part of the Public Works’ Enhanced Street Repair Program, the City will also resurface Spring Boulevard (south of 27th Avenue) and Jeppesen Acres (east of Gilham), along with several smaller streets.
