Franklin Corridor Catalytic Project

As part of the Lane Livability Consortium work plan, the “catalytic project” task brought regional partners together to collaborate on a tangible project with shared goals and broad community benefits. A project team was assembled with staff representatives from the City of Eugene, the City of Springfield, Lane County, the University of Oregon, and the Lane Transit District. The team set out to define a regionally significant project related to the Regional Prosperity Economic Development Plan and to highlight important steps towards making the project a reality. The Franklin Boulevard corridor, which runs through multiple jurisdictions and generally follows the course of the Willamette River, was selected as the subject of this task in part due to the strong foundation of planning and investments which has already been laid. The area was collectively established as “The River Districts.”
