Community Investment Strategy

The Eugene-Springfield metropolitan region is facing resource challenges that threaten our ability to maintain our infrastructure, retain our service capacity, and fund new development necessary to support our growing population. Overcoming these challenges requires an understanding of our needs and proposed investments, as well as innovative tools that promote a synergistic approach through which different agencies and departments can focus and leverage investments.

The Community Investment Strategy project (Task 9) of the Lane Livability Consortium sought to identify the region’s collective infrastructure investments, program and service delivery, and maintenance and operations in order to prioritize opportunities for partnered local community investment. The process was designed to engage and assist the needs of multiple and diverse agencies. The geographic focus area for this analysis is the boundary of the Central Lane Metropolitan Plan Organization (MPO), which includes the Cities of Eugene, Springfield, and Coburg as well as unincorporated land surrounding these jurisdictions.

By building upon and complementing existing efforts and plans, this project sought to provide data and analysis that can be used by multiple agencies to consider refinements and new approaches to enhance funding efficiencies.
