Randy Prince will be in the Amazon Neighbor's seat tonite so I wanted to
take a moment to suggest a minor change to the workplan, specifically
adding ECLA (Eugene Comprehensive Lands Assessment) to the list of
ascronyms in the details box for "Keep updated on City processes germane
to or focused on neighborhoods".
Here is why: The discussion over how we manage growth in Eugene will be
very different once ECLA is complete. It seems quite probable that we
will have to decide whether to extend the UGB and/or make Eugene more
dense. It will no longer be data free debate but one with real
consequences. I predict this will be a significant issue for
Neighborhoods in the next year (and likely beyond) so we should anticipate
it in the work plan.
