Land Use, Housing & Transportation

Land Use, Housing, and Transportation

Effective land use planning determines how and where we locate new schools, houses, businesses and shopping in balance with our precious open space.  Pat has worked extensively at every level from the school board to the massive Envision Eugene process and state-wide planning goals to determine future needs and plan new schools, public safety facilities, parks, roads and protected wetland areas.  When planning for our future, Pat will continue to look at both short and long terms needs for land use and transportation in order to maintain Lane County’s unique character while balancing that with the needs of current and future residents. Providing residential, industrial and commercial land without adequate roads does not work.  As County Commissioner, Pat will draw on his vast experience and knowledge in order to build a more vibrant community where people are proud to live. He will continue to fight to make Eugene and all of Lane County livable and affordable.
