Community Climate and Energy Action Plan Endorsed by City Council On Wednesday, September 15, Eugene City Council unanimously endorsed Eugene’s first Community Climate and Energy Action Plan with the following goals: 1. Reduce community-wide greenhouse gas emissions 10 percent below 1990 levels by 2020 and 75 percent by 2050. 2. Reduce community-wide fossil fuel use 50 percent by 2030. 3. Identify strategies that will help the community adapt to a changing climate and increasing fossil fuel prices. The plan contains several pedestrian and bicycle related recommendations including: • • • • Create 20-minute neighborhoods, where 90 percent of Eugene residents can safely walk or bicycle to meet most basic, daily, non-work needs, and have safe pedestrian and bicycle routes that connect to mass transit. Create a “Complete Streets” policy that requires all subsequent transportation and rehabilitation projects to incorporate infrastructure for bicycles, pedestrians, and mass transit service. Increase the mileage and connectivity of bicycle boulevards and shared-use paths to encourage biking by cyclists of various skill levels. Increase promotion of bicycling, walking, mass transit, car-pooling, and telecommuting, as attractive alternatives to driving.

You can find Eugene’s Community Climate and Energy Action Plan online here or contact Sustainability Liaison, Babe O’Sullivan at (541) 682-5017.

PUBLIC INPUT OPPORTUNITIES Envision Eugene Project Update Envision Eugene has been involving community members in the conversation about how we grow since spring 2010. Three public workshops were held in May and June, and the website, www.envisioneugene.org, has all meeting materials and other relevant information. Over the summer, project momentum continued with the assistance of the Community Resource Group, including representatives from seven neighborhoods (Cal Young Neighborhood Association, Friendly Area Neighbors, Jefferson Westside Neighbors, River Road Community Organization, Santa Clara Community Organization, South East Neighbors, and South University Neighborhood Association). Now is the time for broader neighborhood involvement. We would like to encourage neighborhoods to participate in the mapping exercise described below, and to submit their ideas, comments and maps to help inform the creation of a draft plan for how Eugene will accommodate growth. The draft plan will be refined through community input and acted upon early next year by the City Council. Your input will influence the draft plan for how Eugene will accommodate growth. • Working on a city or neighborhood map, answer the following questions. You can write out your answers or use stickers and notes placed on the map: o What are the places you cherish in Eugene?

Where are the developments that you like, and of which you would like to see more? o Where are the opportunities for more jobs, housing, and services? Neighborhoods can do this exercise independently, and provide their feedback directly to City staff, or we can provide staff for neighborhoods who would like assistance. The city-wide map is available at www.envisioneugene.org in the Community Group documents folder. To obtain a portion of the map scaled for your neighborhood, contact Terri Harding at terri.l.harding@ci.eugene.or.us. o
