Downtown Eugene is the social, economic and cultural heart of our community, and the source of some of our most vexing community challenges. Since the Downtown Plan was adopted in 2004, we have made significant improvements to our downtown. We have invested in transportation options, redeveloped old buildings, and filled vacant and underutilized lots with purposeful buildings and significant community destinations. Downtown Eugene has world-class amenities and it is a hub of creativity and entrepreneurship. However, ongoing and emerging challenges continue to hold us back and impact the quality of life of people living, working, and visiting downtown. It is time to develop an updated list of priorities and projects that will guide the next phase of downtown investments.

Through conversations with residents, businesses, and organizations, the City is developing a list of Downtown Priorities and Projects to guide future improvements to the area. Eugene City Council will consider this list in early 2023 and begin strategizing on how to implement the priorities that come out of this process. 

To develop the list of Priorities and Projects, the City will conduct broad outreach to a variety of stakeholders through interviews and focus groups. The City will engage with stakeholders who have been involved in past planning efforts and  conduct pro-active outreach to people who historically have had marginal input with decision-makers, such as youth, people of color, low-income residents, and people with disabilities. In addition, the City will launch an online survey and host a community event to clarify challenges and opportunities.
