Metro Planning

The Eugene-Springfield Metropolitan Area General Plan, or Metro Plan, is this metropolitan area's comprehensive plan. The Metro Plan planning process is an inter-jurisdictional effort among the Cities of Eugene and Springfield and Lane county, and its policies and diagram provide guidance on how land use, natural resources, public facilities, and the local economy should be developed, designed, and/or conserved over time.

In 2007, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 3337 (PDF), which requires the cities of Eugene and Springfield to evaluate their buildable lands inventories for a new 20-year planning period and, based on that evaluation, establish separate urban growth boundaries. More information and detail is available at the cities of Eugene and Springfield websites.
