I was the one who asked for the work session, so I plan to be an advocate
for the Collaborative position. I will share the letter as well.

Subject: Final letter re building setbacks going to Council and EPC
Dear WEC friends,
Later today, the attached signed letter on building setbacks along West 11th
Avenue will be distributed to the Eugene City Council in their weekly
packet. It is also being distributed to members of the Eugene Planning

slightly to address concerns Lisa Gardner raised: She wanted to make clear
that buildings are not required to be built right up to the right-of-way,

CHRIS: I expect it will primarily fall on you to bring the letter to the
attention of the Council, or at least to be the primary spokesperson
offering additional perspective on the intent of the letter. Staff in the
Planning and Development Department have indicated they are prepared to

Council's packet, and so might have questions about the letter as early as

of the WEC:

While these are all modest efforts, I believe they do demonstrate the
ability of the WEC to find solutions and reach consensus on a variety of
transportation-related issues in west Eugene. I look forward to the heavy
lifting we will be doing in the next month or two, and our final
Lastly, I am sending this message to the WEC list-not the larger WEC_ALL
list of interested parties (including media). I leave it to others(Emily?
Tim? Jan? Gary?) to decide if and when to distribute the letter to our
Thank you all around for good work,
