South Ridgeline Habitat Study Public Meeting
Drop-in 4:30-6:30pm
Hilyard Community Center

From city web page: http://www.eugenenr.org/SR_workshop_1.htm

"This is an opportunity for you to learn about the new South Ridgeline Habitat Study, ask questions of City staff, and provide input on important habitat areas, plants and wildlife in your neighborhood. This is an informal “open house,” where you can drop by anytime between 4:30 to 6:30 pm. There will be a presentation at 5:00 pm."

"What is the South Ridgeline Habitat Study?
"The Eugene City Council has asked City staff to begin work on a study of potentially important plant and wildlife habitat areas along Eugene's South Ridgeline. The study, called the South Ridgeline Habitat Study (SRHS), will evaluate approximately 2,000 acres near the ridgeline of the South Hills to determine where important upland habitat (versus stream and wetland habitat) areas exist. The inventory phase of the SRHS will involve collection of field data by wildlife scientists and botanists. Their work will result in an inventory and map of native plant communities, such as oak savanna, potential habitats for rare plants, such as the threatened wayside aster, and potential habitat for state-designated sensitive wildlife species, such as the red-legged frog. This inventory will be the basis of future recommendations on possible protection measures or conservation incentive programs for important south ridgeline habitats.

"Where are we in the process?
"The SRHS includes an "Inventory" phase and an "Alternatives & Recommendations" phase. The inventory phase is scheduled to begin in Spring 2006. This public workshop will provide information and an opportunity to submit comments on the Inventory phase. Phase II of the study is expected to begin in Winter of 2007, will involve an evaluation of the data that has been collected, and recommendations on potential conservation strategies for important habitat areas. Hearings before the Eugene Planning Commission and City Council on recommendations for the study will be held later in the process.
