Welcome to Trust the Neighbors!

*** Learn the true facts about housing affordability and the City’s disastrous deregulation. ***

This is a site where folks can gather and share information to help fulfill the Envision Eugene pillar — “Protect, Repair and Enhance Neighborhood Livability.”

During 2019, homeowners and residents of Eugene’s neighborhoods face serious threats to the livability of their neighborhoods, despite the lofty Envision Eugene “pillar.” These include amending the ownership and density requirements for “Accessory Dwelling Units” as a stealth means of upzoning single-family neighborhoods, misrepresenting that so-called “missing middle” housing would aid in addressing the housing affordability crisis, and amending housing development standards  to make them “clear and objective” without an adequate public involvement process.

In 2020, the even broader threat of House Bill 2001 looms. Learn more here and become engaged to ensure your neighborhood determines its own future.

  1. I am new to Eugene (from the East Coast), living in SW Eugene. I have an interest in the issues being raised about the South Willamette Special Area Zone. I wanted to make sure that other interested people have read the NY Times 4/17/2016 article BUILD, BABY, BUILD regarding San Francisco’s like problem, though a bit more complicated there. They are having the same struggles, balancing the need for more affordable housing, while maintaining sustainability and quality living for the residents, and all the other issues that arise when planning smart growth.
