SEN General Meeting on Envision Eugene 2/8/2011

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Here are the Southeast Neighbors draft collective statements from our second general meeting related to Envision Eugene, in November, created together using the consensus-circles process.

We're also meeting tonight for our third general meeting to focus on Envision Eugene issues:

Southeast Neighbors General Meeting
Tuesday, February 8, 2011, 7:00-9:00pm
Hilyard Community Center
2580 Hilyard Street, Eugene

Our new collective statements from November are available online at:

BTW, these are the four questions we addressed in November, with our collective response in this new set of statements:

What are your worst possible outcomes of planning for changes in
the housing mix in Eugene?

What are your best possible outcomes of planning for changes in
the housing mix in Eugene?

What do you need or want to know more about, to help create a
vision for the next 20 years in Eugene?

What question or questions would you like Southeast Neighbors to
discuss, and make a collective statement about?

And back in June, at our first general meeting on Envision Eugene, we addressed these three initial questions:

What are your worst possible outcomes of planning for growth in
Eugene?

What are your best possible outcomes of working together to plan
how Eugene should grow?

What I Might Do to Help.

Our collective statements from June, which we reviewed at the beginning of our November general meeting, are available online at:

With the Eugene City Council scheduled to make some key decisions regarding Envision Eugene in mid-March, our meeting tonight is especially timely, and I look forward to taking things to the next level together in our neighborhood discussion.

with all best wishes,

Kevin Matthews
