Neighborhood Association Program

Eugene has twenty-three (23) formally recognized neighborhood associations. Active neighborhood associations provide everyone an opportunity to have a voice in decisions that affect the livability of their neighborhood and community. Neighborhood associations are a great way to meet neighbors and work together with other organizations and the City to address shared challenges. Being involved in their neighborhood association connects people who share a vision of a safe, healthy, and welcoming community. Neighborhood associations engage in a wide variety of activities from addressing issues such as community safety, neighborhood planning, transportation, parks, homelessness, food security, and disaster preparedness to organizing volunteer projects and social events in their neighborhoods. 


With the help from our advisory committee which has met over the last year and a half, we’ve drafted a new NORP designed with the goal of simplifying and updating the policy to reflect current State and local laws and consolidating several policy documents into one unified policy. The draft NORP is open for comments and feedback through January 19, 2024.

The current NORP  was approved by Resolution No. 2554 (August 23, 1976) and amended by Resolution No. 3746 (January 26, 1983) and by Resolution No. 5140 (October 12, 2015).  


Neighborhood associations submit annual reports on their activities. A compilation of all neighborhood reports may be accessed online.
